Blog Tour: 88 Great Daddy Daughter Dates (Review)

Daughters. For some dads, the word "daughter" sends shivers down their spine. A bundle of ribbons and lace and a smile that could melt your heart.

Rob Teigen knows what raising a girl is like. In fact, the father of three girls has poured out his experience (with some help from his wife, Joanna) and captured 88 moments that a dad can do with his daughter to make a memory.

This book is sweet. Flipping thru the dates, I found a variety of things a dad could do with his gal to encourage conversation and interaction.

I loved one, that involved an egg timer and a 30 minute drive. In fact, I think it might even make a fun "tween time" mystery trip this summer.

The more I dived into the book, the more I thought - I need to share it with a couple of friends who have daughters. I could see them totally getting into the dates.

I also appreciated how each date also includes some questions to ask each other, and even a way to get the dad thinking about things at a deeper level.

This is a great book. On a scale of one to five, I give this book a three. It's a great resource for dads. Practical, hands-on and easy to do.

Think of this as a road map to your daughter's heart - one date at a time.
