"What Daddy Did Today is a bedtime story for a father to read to his child. When I was a kid, I would always wonder where my father went when he left the house for work every morning. What did he do? Who was he with? Why would it take so long? Of course, I learned later that Dad was just going to the office every day. But my imagination, up to that point, told me differently. I imagined my dad traveling to space, fighting dragons, and hitting home runs while he was away “at work.” So, this is a story that, as a kid, I would have loved to hear my dad tell. And now, as a grown man and future dad, it’s also a story that I would love to tell my son or daughter before they go to sleep. Because, although the story is filled with fun and adventure, ultimately, it is about how much Daddy loves his kid. I hope you enjoy it."

About the Author, Walter Wally:
Walter Wally was born and raised in Baltimore, MD. At an early age, Walter discovered that he loved to tell rhyming stories. One of Walter’s fondest memories is sitting in his basement as a young boy, and creating his first rhyming story to explain why the walls would creak. If memory serves, I think Frankenstein had something to do with it. Anyway, if anything can turn Walter into a kid again, it’s telling stories that people enjoy. Walter writes rhyming stories for adults as well, and is available for all kinds of readings and events.

A couple of days ago I offered to babysit my neighbors two little ones ages 2 and 4, then thought what I am going to do to get them into bed. Then I remembered I received this new book for children and decided to give it a try....this book came at a perfect time for me. The two little ones were totally captivated by the story of what daddy did and I had to read it to them twice before they would sleep.
"What Daddy Did Today" is a great story about what daddy does while he's away from home. Wally's story line is fascinating and easy for children to understand and Judith's illustrations are one of the best I've seen in a very long time. The kids loved it and would love if I came to read it every night. Even I fell in love with the story and highly recommend the book to all moms, dads, grandparents, aunts and uncles!
I give "What Daddy Did Today" a HUGE 5 star rating!
