Have you ever had one of those restless nights, when you just canít get to sleep? Or when it is the middle of the night and you just canít stand the sound of that dripping tap or someoneís snoring, anymore? Those problems seem very mild compared to the snoring in the picture book, My Daddy Snores. The daddy in this book snores so loud it is like a chugging train or a roaring dinosaur! Could you live with that?

This picture book reminded me very much of my own father when he starts snoring! My Daddy Snores made me laugh! The illustrations are all very well done, colourful and full of life. The exasperated expressions on the characters faces are what I liked the best, because they were big. This is a great gift book for that loud dad! It is a lovely present to prepare for your dad on Fatherís Day! Wouldnít he love to hear how loud his snoring really is!

I would recommend this book for families with small children because the imaginative illustrations will keep everyone captivated. A good read for that special dad who snores! Plus, it is a good way to learn your days of the week.

This reviewer gives My Daddy Snores five loud stars! This book also has information at the back that is quite useful for that mom or dad who snores so much, giving that loud mommy or daddy some techniques to help stop the snoring and let their family get some sleep!
