'I love my daddy' is a great book which my daughter and I enjoy reading. Like most dads, the book seems to be written about my own personal exploits - sneaky snacks, fun in the park, shoulder rides...it's a fun book that reminds us of the good times we have together, and it is still a regular read.
Unfortunately, 'I love my mummy' seems to revel in the same style of stereotypical parenting - mummy is great because she wipes my bum, washes my face etc. Whilst the book is still nicely illustrated, it doesn't seem to have the charm or appeal of the 'daddy' book, and isn't really as appreciated by mother or child. As it is, they've decided to stick with 'Where the wild mums are' as being more reflective of modern mothering!
Another slight note - the 'I love my daddy' board book which I have is nicely bound with a semi-padded front cover. This variant is just a straight forward board book, two-thirds of the size.
The problem is when the Mummy and Daddy versions are put side by side. Daddy does all the fun stuff, Mummy does the shopping, keeps the baby quiet and all the hard work.
