There are so many things that your daddy does for you every day. Even when you have done something annoying, or silly daddy, somehow takes what you did and he fixes it. What about the time when you lost your shoe just when you were ready to go to the beach. Some people might say at such a time "You should put things where they belong" but daddy doesn’t say these words. Instead he finds your shoe for you and even helps you put it on.

And what about that bedtime story that you want to hear for the 100th time. Does daddy say "We’ve read that old story over and over" ? No he doesn’t, instead he reads the story in just that perfect daddy way.

This is a loving, understanding tribute to all daddies who do hundreds of wonderful things for their children ever day. This is a book which thanks daddies all over the world for their patience, their kindness, and their love. Expressive paintings perfectly compliment the cleverly placed text.
