Reasons I Love Dad Children's Book

Reasons I Love Dad Children's Book


Celebrate all the wonderful reasons you love Daddy with this gorgeous personalised book for children. Available in Hard or Soft Cover, this is a perfect gift for a special Dad this Father's Day.

Tips on writing the story

  • Read the story so you can see how your answers fit in the sentence

  • Select the person who the book is about - choose from Dad, Daddy, Papa, Step Dad, Grandad, Grandpa, or Uncle.

  • The story is written on behalf of the child. Select how many children the book is from - if more than one child, all text will be changed to "We love" etc (note the pictures show singular woodland animals).

  • Only use capitals where they are needed eg: proper names.

  • Remember punctuation if needed within your sentence (commas etc) - we'll add punctuation to the end if appropriate!

  • Include "the" if needed eg: "the park" and remember verbs eg: "playing football".

  • On the first page we print a personalised message so they can treasure the book eg, "For my Daddy - love Oscar, with a little help from Mummy who did the typing!".

  • The second page has a physical description - select from our list of facial hair (smooth chin, bristly chin, curly moustache, fluffy beard, hairy ears) and choose a hairstyle (eg thick, curly, long - or invisible!!)

  • We read each book and will amend tenses etc, but will not amend your spelling or the content of your answer.

The Story

There are a million reasons I love you, but these are my favourite...

I love your (hair style eg thick, or invisible!!) hair, (facial hair eg: smooth chin) and your laugh that’s like sunshine.

I love the games you play with me, especially (favourite game).

I love our (or your if Grandparent) home in (town) where you keep me happy and safe.

You are an amazing (what person does e.g.: teacher or Daddy, Grandparent etc) and are always there for me, even when you’re busy.

I love your cuddles, hugs and kisses, and so does (other family members e.g.: Mummy!) 

I love the food you make for me. At the moment I like (food e.g.: milk), but that might change very soon!

I love it when you take me for trips to (places you go e.g.: the park or to football).

I love your sense of humour and when you tickle me and make me giggle!

You are brilliant at reading me bedtime stories. I really like (favourite book or something else eg: like all the funny voices you do).

You are the greatest (person e.g.: Daddy) in the whole world.

First birthday as a dad gift

Lovely gift to my husband from baby. Something for them to read together and a special keepsake for dad too. He absolutely loved it.

Victoria Baller (Redditch, GB)
Beautiful birthday gift

I ordered ‘Reasons I love Daddy’ for my husbands birthday. It has made a wonderful keepsake for his first birthday with our newborn son. The customization options are lovely and the quality of the book is beautiful.

If there was one thing id want different it would be the option to type the customizations more often rather than the drop down boxes.

Thank you for such a lovely gift!
