The narrative is written very much like extended rhyming song lyrics, telling of a little girl having continuous fun with her daddy. She steps on his feet and lets him dance and twirl her. Together they play tea party, tag, and board games. All too soon the little girl becomes a middle schooler, and Dad has to serve the refreshments during sleepovers and pajama parties. Nevertheless, he finds time to help her with homework, and they still find time to dance, even if just in private. Ultimately, the girl grows up, falls in love, and gets married, and at the wedding, Dad gets one final time to hear his daughter say, "Dance me, Daddy."
Although this book does not quote Scripture, it underscores biblical tenets of family nurturing, parental love, and training up a child in the way she should go. It's a cute, heart-tugging story that adults will relate to even more than the 4- to 7-year-olds at which the book is targeted. The illustrations by Philomena O'Neill are not in glaring colors, but are more subdued in a way that makes one think of looking at a family album. The whole book is quite effective and enjoyable.
