This story showcases the difference between dads and how they all have one thing in common which is love for their family.

I love Todd Parr's books, with their brightly-colored stick figures and simple, inclusive messages.

An adorable, vibrant book celebrating the differences of Dads and the similarities-- all Dads love their kids! Todd Parr's stories never fail to make readers laugh, smile, nod, and sometimes cry due to their simple, powerful messages. ( )

The books of Todd Parr (creator of the Discovery channel TV show Toddworld) feature fanciful and boldly colored line drawings that instantly appeal to children. The Daddy Book is filled with Parr's trademark images and lots of statements about the different kinds of daddies, both mundane and silly: ("Some daddies sing in the shower. Some daddies sing to you in bed."€) A fun book to share with children. Bonus fun: Get them to make up "Some daddies" phrases of their own. Review by Book Dads ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0316607991, Hardcover)

Whether they're working at home or working far away, teaching you how to walk or how to ride a skateboard, wearing suits or wearing two different socks, daddies can be pretty cool. With childlike smiling stick figures, bold, brilliant color, and upbeat text, picture-book creator Todd Parr celebrates the diverse, wonderful world of fathers in The Daddy Book. As in his Mommy Book, Parr focuses on the differences between individual parents ("Some daddies make cookies. Some daddies stop for doughnuts."), but brings it all together every few pages with lines like, "All daddies love to kiss and hug you!" or "All daddies like to watch you sleep!" Parr's quirky artwork and eternally optimistic--yet never saccharine--books are truly irresistible, for both grownups and kids. Don't miss any of his friendly, esteem-boosting titles: The Best Friends Book, It's Okay to Be Different, Underwear Do's and Don'ts, and lots more. (Ages 3 to 6) --Emilie Coulter
