Start making memories that last a lifetime

This innovative book gives dads a wide variety of fun ideas for spending quality time with their little girls. Each date tells you what to grab (any needed supplies), where to go, and how to grow together while having a blast. You'll also find Scriptures and questions for each date to get conversation flowing. From bird-watching and making paper airplanes to bowling and photo scavenger hunts, there's something for every dad and every little girl ages 6-12.

She'll be your daughter for life. But she'll only be your little girl for a while. Make the most of this
special time with the help of 88 Great Daddy-Daughter Dates.


Practicle, easy-to-read, and well-crafted, 88 Great Daddy-Daughter Dates is a must-have resource for every father of little girls. I myself have talked many times about the importance of going on "dates" with my daughters, and have succeeded at doing so a couple of times. However, I must confess that my creative juices run out quickly, and I am often unsure of how to make the time we spend together special and memorable. This is precisely where Joanna and Rob Teigen have come to the rescue, providing a truly usable book of ideas for fathers with ideas of what to do. Each date has a section entitled "Grab", which lists the items needed for that particular date, followed by a section called "Go" with directions on how the date should progress. However, my favourite section is the "Grow" section, which helps you turn that date into a teachable moment that points back to their relationship with God.

My daughters are very excited about this book, and I am extremely thankful for the creativity of the authors in writing this excellent resource. I highly recommend it and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
