Review quotes
Every parent of a young or children is very familiar with the word "why" as it is often asked several times any given day. This book takes a lovely spin on that "why" question, as it examines the relationship between a father and his cub and why he does the things he does. Examples of questions asked are, "Why do you have a phone, Daddy? Why?" From adventures to snuggles and everything else in between, this father does all things because of love for his cub! This book is perfect for parents or guardians to read to their littles at bed time, and it also makes the perfect gift for people expecting a child. While this book is extremely cute, it may not be the best for older children as it lacks true depth or a plot. All in all, this book is the perfect addition to a home library.
