Book’em Danno Book Giveaway Hop: Enter to Win the Bestselling Children's Book, "Because I’m Your Dad," by Ahmet Zappa!

Book'em Danno Book Hop

Welcome to the Book'em Danno Book Hop!

This event is hosted by The Review Wire and is dedicated to book lovers everywhere. Whether it's hardcover, paperback, eBooks or gift cards to buy a book, each participating blog is offering you some kind of reading adventure! After you enter my giveaway, make sure to hop on down the list to see what each blogger has to offer. Also, you can enter The Grand Prize drawing over at The Review Wire. Two prize packs will be offered to two winners that include all children's titles, both valued at more than $110!

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:
