I Have Two Daddies is the story told by a little girl about her two daddies, her earthly daddy and her heavenly daddy. As she talks about her earthly daddy, she talks about all of the things they do together. She describes the things her earthly daddy does and says to assure her how much he loves her. She also tells of her heavenly daddy, the daddy she can’t see because he is in heaven. First she tells how she began her relationship with her heavenly daddy, and then about the things that assure her that her heavenly daddy loves her. Join this little girl as she tells you all about her two daddies, and how you can have a heavenly daddy too!
I really like this story. Having a little girl tell the story about her earthly and heavenly daddies was a very nice idea, because children will listen when other children tell them something. I like that the two daddies are compared to each other, and author Lynn Calvin does an excellent job of explaining the likes and differences between the two. And the illustrations by Maria Rask are well thought out and fit the story well. Other neat things in this book is a Praise Certificate, to fill out because you are thankful for having two daddies, as well as a few activities for children to do. It would be wonderful if this book could get into the hands of every child. I highly recommend this for your child’s library.

It was amazingly well written! This is a great learning tool for kids of all ages. You touched on scriptures which was great because kids too can learn about the bible. If I had to grade your book, I’d give it an A-. Why A-? Because, I thought it could have been a little longer. However, you did an amazing job delivering the difference between an earthly Daddy and Heavenly Daddy! Thx Lynn
“I Have Two Daddies: An Earthly Daddy and A Heavenly Daddy” authored by Lynn Calvin and illustrated by Maria Rask is a “must have” for every child’s literary library. Bounded within its beautifully illustrated covers, is a foundational spiritual principle, which reveals the loving relationship between… God and His children from a little girls point of view. “I Have Two Daddies” makes a wonderful bedtime story for children 3 to 8 and a great first book for beginning readers. I encourage church leaders and educators to add this book to their library. Great source for a Sunday school lesson.
Ms. Calvin has in her own way weaved the simplistic and theological meaning of patriarchism in the human and divine. She has casted such into two extremes without diluting its meaning. The youngest can grasp with understanding as well as the well seasoned the essence of who we are in relation to the mortal family. A must read by all ages.
