Parr dedicated The Daddy Book “to all the different kinds of dads who have worked so hard to make life a little bit easier with their unconditional love and support.”
In The Daddy Book Parr highlights, in short sentences and bold color choices, what dads love to do. Parr’s book looks at all dads, from the suit-wearing father to the daddy wearing mis-matched socks. He talks about daddies who bake cookies and daddies who go out for doughnuts; from dads teaching kids to skateboard or walk, The Daddy Book brings it home by talking about a few of the things all daddies love to do with their children! The Daddy Book will surely win your heart and your child’s. Parr’s clever, child-like illustrations make this book full of energy and daddy pride.
The Author: The author lives near San Francisco where he not only writes children’s books but also has a Television show, ToddWorld; a show for preschool viewers. The premise is Todd, a little boy, lives in an amazing imaginative land where pretty much anything is possible. The artwork will seem familiar to you after reading Parr’s books; the same bold colors and lines appear within his show. When Parr isn’t working hard writing books and drawing illustrations, he and his dog, Bully, love to explore dog friendly beaches where they can play and watch the fog roll in and out.
Parr’s style is consistently amazing; his books talk about ideas such as love and kindness. His books also discuss family, individuality and enjoying life. Although the subject matter might seem intense, Parr’s humorous, silly style makes his books fully accessible to children. The DaddyScrubs’ team loves The Daddy Book so much, that we are now offering it for purchase in our online bookstore, Daddy Nickell’s Bookstore – check out this title and many more at www.daddyscrubs.com.
Reading is incredibly important, and it is something that all daddies should do with their children! So grab a daddy book and get reading!
