31 Days of NEW Kids Picture Books: Day 16

Nelly Gnu and Daddy Too by Anna Dewdney. May 2014.

From Amazon: "Drawing. Reading. Building. Painting. These are things Nelly loves to do…but they’re always better with Daddy Gnu! With fun-to-read rhyme, a little silliness, and a lot of warmth, Anna Dewdney—the creator of the beloved llama llama books—tells the story of a daughter and her daddy and their wonderful day together."

My thoughts: I have never met an Anna Dewdney book I don't like. I'd go so far as to say I've never met a Llama Llama book I don't love! With catchy rhymes, great plots, beautiful illustrations, and stories that just cover a variety of children's emotions, these are probably my favorite children's book series of all time. This installment features Nelly Gnu (whom we first met in Llama Llama Time to Share) and the adventures she has with her daddy while building a playhouse. It's very heartwarming, and reflects just how much little girls look up to their daddies. I highly highly recommend this book, along with the others in the series!

Age: Toddler and up
