Daddies Do It Different, by Alan Lawrence Sitomer: An Autographed Children’s Book Giveaway (US/CAN) Plus a Free Downloadable Father’s Day Card!

If you’re a mother, you certainly know that fathers often do things differently than we do. Yes, sometimes this can be frustrating for moms, but it can also be humorous and certainly adds some variety to life! In the children’s book, Daddies Do It Different, by Alan Lawrence Sitomer, the author explains to kids that moms and dads may not do things the same way, but we both love our children just as much! Dad’s attempts at getting children dressed, fed, or put to bed may not be as well-organized as Mom’s efforts, but it all works out in the end, and we can usually laugh at the result. This is a super-fun book that kids will adore. It will also spur some interesting family discussions about how Mom and Dad have different ways of doing things. I love the adorable artwork by Abby Carter, too!

Here’s a fun and silly video of the author, Alan Sitomer, and his daughter introducing Daddies Do It Different!
