“Night Night, Daddy” by Amy Parker

Night Night, DaddyNight Night, Daddy by Amy Parker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This board book is an excellent tale for father-son reading time at night. The pages are illustrated beautifully and depicts the fun-loving wildness found in a boy’s heart. The story follows a daddy fox and a little fox, presumably a boy, in their adventures during the day to get ready for bed. Going from kites to pancakes and prepping a tent/fort for camping out, this work of art is a welcome bedtime story in a field typically flooded with “mommy” books.

Excellent as a bedtime reading option, this book has a nice poetic prose to it, helping children engage with the words. It is also brief, which is great for parents who don’t want to read a whole chapter each night, like most books attempt to push. The content itself is positive and uplifting, showing fathers how their actions model the faith their children will have, and what boys not so secretly want to do with their fathers.

This book has become a go-to for the boys to have me read to them at night, when previously the reading was saved for “momma” instead of myself. My kiddos love it and I do to, and I’m glad to have it on my bookshelf.
