Because I’m Your Dad (Giveaway ends 5/25/13)


Because I'm Your Dad

In a previous post I mentioned a book that would make a wonderful Father’s Day gift, especially for older children. I have another wonderful gift idea, this time around for younger boys and girls. It’s also a great book for any father to read to his children (it’s the perfect bed time story!).

Here is a little information about the book.

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.

I have not had the opportunity to read the book, but from what I can see it looks precious. ๐Ÿ™‚

Check out this A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E trailer for the book. Awww… too cute!


You can also see the trailer here, http://bit.ly/18rgKV9.

Because I’m Your Dad was written by Ahmet Zappa, the son of rock musician/composer Frank Zappa.

Ahmet Zappa is the son of late rock musician/composer Frank Zappa and, as he puts it, “My awesome mother, Gail.” Because I’m Your Dad is both a tribute to his happy childhood and a promise to his daughter, Halo. Ahmet grew up with a learning disability and now writes books to help children discover how wonderful reading can be. Through his production company, Monsterfoot Productions, Ahmet has developed several television shows and movies, including The Odd Life of Timothy Green.

I never knew that he helped to develop the movie The Odd Life of Timothy Green. That is such a sweet movie. Have you seen it?
