Daddy’s Little Princess is about a beautiful relationship between father and daughter. It shows how a first time dad grows to become a confident and loving father and how a little girl, with the help of her dad, overcomes her fears and becomes a responsible, confident young woman.

The story takes place through eight nights during certain ages of the daughter’s life where she is scared to go to bed. In infant and toddler stages, she is afraid of what is to come in her life. Her dad comes in her room to help her conquer her fears and show her how much he loves and cares for her.

After each night, the daughter has extraordinary dreams that helps her conquer her fear at that moment. Her father’s hopes  are for her to grow up to be an independent and responsible young woman, but also know that he will always be there for her no matter what. 

I received this book free from the author
in exchange for my honest opinion. This, in no way, influences
my review. 


As someone who watched the amazing changes in her husband with the birth of a daughter, this book brought me to tears. I adored how you could see the father and daughter connecting and how much he loved her. This story is one I am definitely going to be saving for when Lady Quinn is old enough to really appreciate her daddy 🙂

I liked how this book didn’t focus on just the newborn daughter. It actually progressed and showed different stages in the daughter’s life, as she grew.

The artwork, done by Callie Faye Lips, is not like the usual children’s book artwork you see. It seems like everything is going digital these days (not a bad thing – we have some favorites that are digitally done). This book, however, has a very hand-drawn quality and I enjoyed the style.

This is definitely one book I would recommend, whether you have a daughter or not.
