Buy it: Dance Me, Daddy
Dance Me, Daddy (By Cindy Morgan) – If you have a little girl, you will probably tear up when you read this touching story about the love between a girl and her daddy. Each turn of the page, shows the little girl growing up from tutus, pigtails and tea parties to sleepovers with friends and homework. But through every age, the daughter and her daddy still dance together and the daughter says the same thing – “Dance me, Daddy…” Then she says that if she’s his princess than he is king of the world. Then the girl leaves home, falls in love and gets married. And on her wedding day, she goes up to her dad and says the same thing, “Dance me, Daddy…” And the last page shows the daughter visiting her parents with her husband and her own little girl. The book comes with a CD of the song “King of the World,” which tells the same story in song. The CD also features the author reading the story and an interview with the author.
The book recommendations included on this website are books that my daughter Ally, now age 5, and I have read and enjoyed together. I recommend the books that stand out to me as excellent children’s books for writing, illustrations, originality, story and characters. Ally and I hope you enjoy them too!
