What Daddy Did Today by Walter Wally is a children’s book for a father to read to his child. I was very excited to review this book – it is such a cute story concept, and (although it is not a true story) it is a fun way to help kids understand that no matter what Daddy is doing all day when he is off to work – he only wants to come home to be with them.

What Daddy Did Today Book
“Because no matter where I go, or what I do, every single moment I’m thinking of you.”
The author, Walter Wally, wrote the book because he always wondered where his dad had went when he went off for work. He wanted to come up with something to answer the question for his future children, and came up with something fun. The Daddy in the book heads off to work, only to save a kitten, head off to space to make a planet happy again, protects the world from a dragon and then comes home for “the best part of his day” to tuck in his little one.
The illustrator, Judith Bicking, has created a world that is graphic and happy. She used creative design and textures in the book to make something fun to read and for children to connect with.
My husband and I are waiting to adopt, we are working to expand our library for little ones, and I am so excited about this book! I want my child to know that no matter what, their adoptive Daddy, my husband, will always come home for them. When he read the book, he loved it – and loved the idea of taking down a dragon. Although, he joked that he wished our children could know how boring his day can be compared to this adventure in the book 😉
