Since my daughters were born, my husband and I have made it a tradition to read them a bedtime story. Not only does it foster a love of reading, but gives us some good quality snuggle time with each of them. Every night, we let them choose the book and I will admit that I am tired of reading the same books over and over. So, my husband and I are always on the lookout for new material.
Fortunately, I was sent the new children’s book, “Because I’m Your Dad” by Ahmet Zappa, son of the late Frank Zappa, for review. My daughters could not wait to snuggle up with Dad and read the new story. The artwork on the cover is whimsical and colorful so they couldn’t wait to dive in.
“Because I’m your dad, you can have spaghetti for breakfast, French toast for dinner, and rocky road ice cream in the bathtub.
In a text that’s both playful and loving, a father expresses his hopes and dreams for a one-of-a-kind relationship with his child. Whimsical monster characters bring the silly and sweet scenes to life and keep the book universal. The book’s ending, a moving tribute to the author’s father, guarantees intergenerational appeal.
Because I’m your dad, I will do all of these things for you and more . . .
because that’s what my dad did for me.”
The girls giggled their way through the book and ended with a big hug for Dad…success! Check out the book trailer below for more details:
