Book Review/Giveaway: Where Does My Dadda Go? Ends Jan 29th


Where Does My Dadda Go? By Lara Kimbrell

About the Book: In Where Does My Dadda Go? A baby struggles to understand why his Dadda has to leave home to go to a mysterious place called work. See the grownup world of work through the innocent eyes of a child. More importantly, experience the love between father and child.

My Review: Do you have to constantly explain to your child where daddy goes to in the morning? This book explains why dadda doesn’t have much time to spend playing in the morning as he has to leave early for work. He learns that dadda has to work hard and the reason is to support his family to keep them safe and warm. The most important thing about this book is that when dadda comes home after a long day at work, he couldn’t wait to see his son. After kissing his wife he says to his son, “There’s my sweet baby! I‘ve waited all day for this!” This shows that children do miss their fathers just as their fathers miss them.

There are many picture books about momma loving babies, but not as many that show how much dadda loves his babies. The photo illustrations are realistic and show the daily activities of dadda. I highly recommend this book for parents with young children.

  1. Oh yes, my kids miss their dad when he is always working. This is a cute idea showing the kids that their dad misses them just as much. It is a hard thing to explain to them, but I always tell them that Daddy goes to work to take care of us and that he’ll be back soon.

  2. This sounds like a really sweet way to help a little one understand a parent needing to leave for work.

  4. Hi Ella,
    I’m here today to let you know I’ve given you the Versatile Blogger Award…I’m sure you may have received it before…but it is well deserved. You are so dependable in your wonderful reviews and interviews and giveaways…I’m amazed at how much you do.
    The link to the award post is here:
    By the way, this is a book that would be so helpful to many parents who have trouble explaining why a parent is not around more. Young children need to know that although their parent/parents may have to leave them to go to work, they don’t love their children less than a parent who might be able to stay at home with them.

  5. What a cute story idea…and relateable…we have grands now and to watch them and remember when your own were that little and wondering and asking the same things.

  6. Very unique in that there are many Mommy and baby books out there like you said but few about Dad. My grandson is a Daddy’s boy and sometimes he works from home but he has to work in their downstairs Rec room so the little one won’t see him or he’d never be able to work and it’s so precious that my grandson goes by the door knowing it’s locked and actually tries to peek into the keyhole and calls “Dada”. lol He knows he’s there and will do this all day on and off. 🙂
    I commented on Lara’s interview as well.

  7. Great idea for a story for the little ones; I know we all have a difficult time explaining, in a way that the kids understand, why daddy does what he does.

  8. This book sounds wonderful. My daughter always misses her Daddy when he goes off to work. She sees him off every morning by standing on a kitchen chair and waving to him from the kitchen window. When she hears the keys jiggle in the lock, she runs for the door yelling, “yay, daddy home, yay”

  10. Books showing how much fathers love their children are definitely needed and appreciated.
