Your Daddy Was Just Like You


Has anyone ever told you your daddy was just like you when he was your age? And didn’t it make you feel special?

In author Kelly Bennett’s latest heartwarming picture book, Your daddy Was Just Like You, a grandmother makes her young grandson feel special by showing him there is nothing unusual about his likes, dislikes, temper tantrums or kiddie games. That’s because his daddy did the very same things and acted the very same way when he was that age.

This warm, fuzzy book by talented Kelly Bennett has all the makings of a classic, and is destined to become a lapbook favorite. Its short, simple, sometimes laugh-out-loud sentences capture the unique love and humor between a father and son, and its cute and sweet illustrations, rendered by illustrator David Walker, tell a big, big story of love, acceptance and unbreakable family bonds.

Perfect for Father’s Day, but if that holiday is already gone, encourage your son to give it to his dad as a “just because” gift. Just click on the link to the right to order.

Best wishes and happy reading,

    • Hi Kelly,
      Thanks for stopping by. I smiled all the way through this book. I can’t remember how many times I told my two sons, Your Daddy was just like you, when they were growing up. Thanks for writing such a clever book. Looking forward to your next project. 🙂
