This book by Anna Dewdney is my favorite from her. Dad, it seems, is a stay at home dad. He spends the day making a mini house with Nelly. They take a trip to the hardware store to find paint for the house. In the end, Nelly sleeps in her cozy house that she made with her dad.

I love that dad understands Nelly. When Nelly gets lost and afraid, he makes her laugh and gives her a big hug. The little flashlight he buys for her little house is perfect. This is a very simple and sweet story about the relationship between daddy and daughter. It is very heartwarming.

A fifth star for the sweetness and lightheartedness of the story. What a perfect book for bedtime reading between dad and daughter!
