The Daddy Book: 07/11/11
The Daddy Book by Todd Parr is a picture book celebration of fathers. Harriet picked out the book at the library because she saw some fathers who reminded her of her own. She brought the book home and read it to Ian.
The fathers in The Daddy Book aren't idyllic representations. These are silly, unique but loving men who are fathers. They are playful. Sometimes they are disorganized and they might even wear mismatched socks!
The text is large with easy to read words meaning it was something that Harriet could read to Ian. It was a nice moment of bonding for both of them.
