I’ve never done a book review but I thought I would give it a try. So I signed up to be a Thomas Nelson Book Review Blogger. They send me a book, I read it and post my review on a consumer site and on my blog. I get to keep the book. Fair enough.
The book I received is a wonderfully illustrated book called, “My Little Girl” by Tim McGraw and Tom Douglas. When this book arrived in the mail and my 8 year daughter saw the cover she insisted I had to read it to her. We sat down right after dinner and I read to her in my best interpretations of the characters voices. She listened intently to the sweet story of a father and his daughter enjoying time doing “nothing in particular”. They find time to dance and talk about imaginary cloud formations. I think my daughter loved the drawings but not the text/dialogue of the story.
The words did not seem like the kind you expect to hear from a young princess talking to her father. “Daddy, swing me all the way over the sun!” does not sound like anything I have ever heard from my daughter.
