To Baby, From Daddy: A Love Letter From a Father to a Daughter by Steve Nguyen is a beautiful and heartwarming story wherein a father writes messages to his daughter; messages filled with his thoughts and advice. He asks her to look up at the night sky and tells her the stars are a reminder about her blessings and how her life is progressing. He tells her she is an extension of her mommy's heart and her mommy's love for her will never fade. He encourages her to travel to new places, try new things, and see new faces. Let us read the story to learn more about the messages and advice he has given to his daughter.

The story is whimsical and is about a father's bonding and love for his daughter. Steve Nguyen makes it magical with colorful illustrations and rhyming verses. The messages are inspirational, uplifting, thought-provoking, and profound, and he reassures her that he will always be there for her. To Baby, From Daddy is all about love, kindness, and caring for others, and also about the wonderful gifts nature gives. The starry sky, the trees, the beach, flowers, bridges, the wind, and the box buried by the father under a tree with memories will have young readers inspired. It is an excellent bedtime storybook for parents and grandparents to read out to their kids and grandkids, and also to teach them some good values and life lessons. Tutors can use it in classrooms and school libraries for read-aloud and storytelling sessions to encourage students to look at life in a beautiful and optimistic way.
