Always Daddy's Princess

Always Daddy's Princess

unpaged picture book

Daddy is ecstatic as his little princess is born. He showers her with love and adoration (and lots of pink things) throughout her life. He supports her and cheers for her at every moment. Whether it's watching a soccer game in the rain or taking her clothes shopping, this dad is there with a smile on his face and love in his heart. Then the inevitable happens and his princess gets married. But guess what? Soon Grandpa's little princess is born! Now the lucky man has two special princesses in his life!
This sweet rhyming picture book highlights a father's love for his little girl through every step of her life. It is also very pink! The love between this father and daughter will touch your heart, though at times the rhymes seem a little forced. Also, there are some biblical quotes sprinkled throughout giving it a slightly religious feeling, but it does not overtake the story.  Hopefully you will feel as I did and think of your own wonderful father who most likely thinks of you as a princess too!
