Say Daddy
by Michael Shoulders

Little Bear was born into a family filled with READERS! Mother Bear read him a book about kindness, caring, and love when he was still in the hospital. She hoped his first word would be "Mommy!" Daddy Bear read him a book about dreaming. He hope Baby Bear's first word would be "Daddy." And so continued the parade of family members who read their own special books to Baby Bear, each of them hoping their names would be his first word.

They were surprised...and you will be, too...when Baby Bear said his FIRST word! What do you think it was?

Say Daddy is the perfect book for a family with a new baby and for preschoolers through grade 3 as they grow into readers themselves. It models a beautiful future filled with kindness, caring, love, devotion, giggles, hugs, families, and the joy of books!
