Hammer and Nails


Hammer and Nails
By Josh Bledsoe
Flashlight Press, 2016. Picture book.

When Darcy’s friend gets sick and her great plans for girly fun are ruined, her dad suggests that they have a Darcy-Daddy Day where they take turns choosing what to do. Skeptical but willing, Darcy agrees. She helps Daddy mow the lawn and then Daddy (wearing a tutu) helps Darcy style themselves some new hairdos.

Both agree to try new things even if they seem boring or scary at first. This is a sweet and realistic story that effortlessly communicates compromise, imagination, hard work, quality time, and the special love between a father and a daughter.
