BookBairn's Favourite Poem

To celebrate National Poetry Day, BookBairn would like to share her favourite poem (abridged version) taken from the book 'I Love My Daddy' by Giles Andreae with artwork by Emma Dodd.

I Love My Daddy

I love my daddy, yes I do,
He's very kind - and funny too.
He teaches loads of things to me,
I think he's clever. So does he!

He lets clamber on his back,
And we play horsies - click clack clack.
He sings me all his favourite songs,
I love to dance and sing along.

He lifts me on his shoulders high,
Until I nearly touch the sky.
And when it's time to eat my tea,
He always says "One bite for me?"

I really love to cuddle him,
And feel the prickles on his chin.
He tucks me safely into bed,
And tells me stories from his head.

My daddy's such a lovely man,
In fact, I am his BIGGEST fan!


Thanks for reading! Enjoy National Poetry Day! Mummy and BookBairn xx

  1. Lovely poem but warn BaookBairn's Daddy about lifting on his shoulders high. It ruined my golf.
