Daddy’s Arms by Fabian E. Ferguson is a children’s rhyming book about the loving bond between a young boy and his doting, playful father. The story is written from the perspective of the child whose imagination runs wild with fantasy during father/son time. Whether it’s playtime, bath time, or bedtime, each moment the two spend together becomes a new, colorful, exciting adventure. No matter where he’s at -- pretend climbing a mountain, in an airplane, elevator, or hurling through space -– one thing is for sure, there’s no safer place than his favorite place…in daddy’s arms.

Daddy’s Arms is such an adorably sweet story about the bond between father and son that it simply melts your heart and brings a smile to your face. The safety and coziness of a father’s embrace is so special, and Fabian E. Ferguson does an excellent job at capturing and expressing those feelings straight from the heart of a child. I love to see books out there devoted to the importance of the relationship between father and son, as there seems to be a shortage of positive books celebrating fatherhood. It’s great how the author intertwined their activities with the fantasy aspect, reminding us that if children are given the safety of a parent’s loving presence, their imaginations are free to roam. The illustrations are colorful and detailed, and the rhyming adds an extra bit of fun to a well thought out, lovely book that’s sure to be a hit with children and parents alike. Well deserving of five stars!
