My giveaway is for the bestselling hardcover children’s book, Because I’m Your Dad, by Ahmet Zappa.
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.
My thoughts: The dad in this book (obviously the author himself) is SO much fun! Every kid would love to have a dad like him. Kids will giggle at their antics, and fathers will be inspired to have a close, loving and, best of all, playful relationship with their kids. Readers will also love the cool and colorful monster illustrations by Dan Santat (definitely not scary). This is an awesome book that parents and children will read over and over again.
Watch the adorable trailer for Because I’m Your Dad below:
Ahmet Emuukha Rodan Zappa is the son of late rock musician/composer Frank Zappa and as he puts it, “My awesome mother, Gail.” Ahmet grew up with a learning disability and now writes books to help children discover how wonderful reading can be. He and his wife Shana are currently collaborating on a new book series, Star Darlings. Through his production company Monsterfoot Productions, Ahmet has developed several television shows and movies, including Disney's The Odd Life of Timothy Green. Ahmet, Shana, and daughter Halo live in Los Angeles, California under a rainbow with their three fur goblins Sandwich, Luna, and Figgy.
