How much do fathers love their children? Enough to fly them to school in a plane? Enough to dig for the biggest dinosaur the world has ever known? From exploring dark caves to leading a marching band to even being a space alien, a father's love is unconditional, and he will do anything to make sure all of his child's dreams come true.
The dynamic duo of Sherry North and Marcellus Hall team up once again to treat parents and children to a story that celebrates affection with imagination. "Because I Am Your Daddy is" a great read-aloud book at storytime or a soothing book at bedtime, and an ideal gift for new fathers on Father's Day.
