This book is a great tool to catapult daughters into a life of empowerment, inspiration, and strength to become successful at all their present and future endeavors.

His poems flow from the heart of a protective father to the soul of a young girl who is learning herself and finding her way in the world. His poem, “God’s Creation,” reminds the reader of who she is and let’s her know that she can use her intelligence and beauty to become all God created her to be. “Self Love” is a poignant reminder to all women that the power of love emanates from within and is a gift from God.

Author, Avery Washington’s book, Letters to My Daughters comes at a time where it seems obsolete that father’s are instrumental in their daughters’ lives. It is so refreshing to read a collection of poetry dedicated to celebrating our young girls who will one day appreciate that love of their father.
The author so profoundly reminds us that the first love a girl has is that of her father. We believe his purpose for writing this book holds to the fact that young women go through various dilemmas as a result of an absentee father.
The love that the author poured into his poetry, on behalf of his daughters, is very inspiring in a society where young girls search for acceptance in all the wrong places.
This book of poems is a true gem because the author infuses life lessons, support, encouragement, love, and God to show us that it is essential that a father be present in his daughters’ existence.
Author, Avery Washington could have just easily spoken these very words to his daughters’ on a more personal note. We celebrate that he shared the love he has for his daughters’ through poetic versus whereby, other father’s will be encouraged to become the first love in their daughters’ lives.
Letters to My Daughters is written to strengthen the bond of the father/daughter relationship where it will become the norm for a young girl or young lady to truly know her father.

Five Star Review on Amazon By La Trisha McIntosh
I love this book because it shows a fathers love for his daughters in a positive light. With so many absentee fathers out there, it is nice to find a book that celebrates the strong bond of the father/daughter relationship, and Letters to My Daughters does just that in bringing about a warmth and truth that confirms that every young girl needs her father. I would highly recommend this book to not only fathers, mothers and daughters but to the entire family, for it takes a village to raise a child. Thank you Avery Washington for presenting a great work for your daughters and our young girls who will one day grow into beautiful women, because someone took the time out to say I care.
