If you love Todd Parr's zany books about feeling good and loving life, you'll flip over this fresh and exuberant companion to his bestselling tribute The Mommy Book.
Honoring fathers everywhere through kind words and rejuvenating illustrations, The Daddy Book shows all the different types of dads out there. "Some daddies have a lot of hair," some "have a little hair," while "some daddies work at home" and "some daddies work far away." Of course, there are lots more, but no matter who the lovable guy is, some truths fit all papas: They "like to try new things," all "like to watch you sleep," and "all daddies want you to be who you are!"
Endearing and fresh, Parr's tribute will lead to heartfelt bonding between dads and kids. His electric colors and thick lines make each page a joy to look at, and children will giggle over the book's many cheerful fathers. As an extra bonus, there's also a free greeting card inside with the book's artwork and an "I love you, Daddy!" message. This is a big-hearted book! (Matt Warner)
