Celebrate the reasons you love Daddy with this gorgeous story book for children. Now available in Hard or Soft Cover this is a perfect gift for a new Dad.
Select how many children the book is from - if more than one child, all text will be changed to "We love" etc (although the pictures show singular woodland animals).
Select the person who the book is about - choose from Dad, Daddy, Papa, Step Dad, Grandad, Grandpa, or Uncle.
Printed with the child's name as the author and illustrated with gorgeous illustrations of woodland creatures - the book covers 10 reasons why you are loved.
On the first page we print a personalised message so they can treasure the book as a keepsake in years to come-- for example, "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!!)
Tips on writing your story:
- Read the story below so you can see how your answers fit in the sentence
- The story is written on behalf of the child
- Only use capitals where they are needed eg: proper names
- Remember punctuation if needed (commas etc)
- Include "the" if needed eg: "the park" and remember verbs eg: "playing football".
- We read each book and will amend tenses etc, but will not amend your spelling or the content of your answer.
Printed to order with bright vivid colours and a laminated cover to protect your book. Be careful when entering your text in the form as we don't amend spelling! Choose from the standard 'Soft cover' or upgrade to a beautiful perfect bound 'Hard cover', which is matt laminated to protect your book for years to come.
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). You are the greatest (person e.g.: Daddy) in the whole world.

Lovely book, arrived promptly and has been greatly enjoyed!
Beautiful illustrations and good quality paper and binding.
Great Father’s Day gift which is read as a bedtime story every night now! Really personal and enjoyable to read.
So pleased with this book, just what I wanted for Father’s Day!
Overall the book is wonderful; the story is lovely and the illustrations are beautiful. A really thoughtful gift that was well received by my partner.
That said, I was disappointed by a couple of elements. As mentioned, the illustrations are beautiful but the quality of either the original artwork, the image compression method or the print quality itself was not quite up to the standard I'd expect, especially considering these books are pretty expensive. There was a blur/pixelation on all the illustrations which was a real disappointment.
The book is printed onto an uncoated paper/card with a matt finish so it does not have the gloss/satin finish you would normally see in childrens picture books. Although I like the finish aesthetically, it's not at all practical as is much more likely to get marked, even from finger prints, and cant we wiped clean. Even the cover is in this style of paper.
The customisation options were limited in places and didnt reflect the variations on today's 'modern family', with an assumption that children would live with mum and dad (for example no option to reflect that Dad's house may not be child's main home or that children might live with grandparents etc). Although I was able to contact customer services and have these changes made to reflect our circumstances, I felt this could have easily been avoided by simply allowing additional wording options during the ordering process. It made what would have otherwise been a very simple process more complicated and a little stressful (worrying that the email might not be picked up in time etc) which is a shame.
Overall a lovely purchase that we will keep forever but for the price I'd have expected a slightly better quality product.
