A proud and loving father shares a series of celebratory sentiments in this nicely illustrated picture book.

'On the day you were born, I wrapped you up warm and took you for a walk to see the world. On the day you were born, the rain stopped and the sun shone, and we splashed through puddles ...'

Venturing through nature, the new arrival and ecstatic father greet animals, watch ducks swim in a river, enjoy colorful flowers and visit the tree where the infant's parents once carved their initials.

Obviously this new dad is savoring teaching his child about all the wonders of the world. You'll love his enthusiasm too!

aveat: Moms may grow tired of seeing each page's narrative begin with, 'My daddy said'! Admittedly, that does become a tad tiresome!
