We Love It
Great book ! I purchased it because I wanted my son to see and hear visual representations similar to his life from a very early age. The author and illustrator do an amazing job of elaborating of the importance of a black father in their sons lives in a positive light. My sons father was excited when I purchased it as a gift for he and our son and they enjoy reading it together. Definitely a way to encourage father-son bonding.

Pure Joy

My husband and 2 year old son both love this book. My son is always bringing “Daddy’s Arms” to us saying, “Read this book” in his cute little toddler voice. The colorful imaginative pictures are great. We can’t wait to get the board book. This one is sure to become a classic.



The illustrations are colorful and detailed, and the rhyming adds an extra bit of fun to a well thought out, lovely book that's sure to be a hit with children and parents alike. Well deserving of five stars!
