This is in fact not a book about spiders, gogo’s or any creepy crawly’s as the title would have you think. Daddy Long Legs is actually a beautiful book about a daddy’s relationship with his child.

How many of you have sang the song, “Clap handies, clap handies for Daddy to come”? When Ian has had to travel in the past although I’ve never sang the song, I’ve found myself pining. Dads, the heroes of so many children’s hearts are often the ones who are traveling, and spending more time away from home. While the parent left behind nurtures and give reassurance of Daddy’s return. This book is that reassurance in a way that warms all the mushies in your heart.
