Awards & Accolades
"Daly makes the seaside an active part of the story: the circle of waves and sky is like the father's embrace that gives the child the strength to be strong and independent. Children and their dads will enjoy acting out the verses and adding their own magical games" — Booklist
"The story highlights a special relationship in which an adult is the springboard from which a child can leap into unbridled possibilities. A delightful selection to share one-on-one or with a group" — School Library Journal
