Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

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

From Publishers Weekly

Just in time for Mother's Day and Father's Day, a pair of books by Todd Parr celebrates different kinds of parents. "Some mommies work at home/ Some mommies work in big buildings," states The Mommy Book, accompanied by Parr's signature combination of simple text and neon-bright contrasting colors with bold black line. Similarly, The Daddy Book highlights the differences between dads. (Apr.)

My 3 year old daughter and husband love reading this book together.

The Daddy Book helps small children know what to expect and teaches adults [dads in this case] what & how their kids think.
A long time mom
The illustrations are simple and very bright to catch the attention of the child.

My 1-year old LOVES this book! Be prepared to read it more than once in a sitting! The illustrations are beautiful, and Todd Parr expresses that daddies can do anything, even stereotypical motherly duties!!!

We are huge Todd Parr fans in our house and The Daddy Book, which we bought for Father's Day last year, did not disappoint. Number one reason we like this book: the illustrations. Number two: Todd Parr is super-inclusive! Every kind of family and every kind of daddy is in this book!

Simple but brilliant!

This book is fabulous. My 13 month old loves this book! When he doesn't want to be in his playpen, I just read him the book and he stops crying and points to the pictures. He loves all the pages but you really get his attention when it comes to: "Some Daddies have little hair..."
It's the best book I have ever bought at an airport. I'm buying another set here at Amazon since it's pretty torn up now...and I want to make sure my next child would get a chance to see read the book too..
We also have the Mommy Book...

Every book Todd Parr has done should be on a must-read list for parents and kids. He brightly colored illustrations are hilarious and are a big hit with kids. If you ever get the chance to meet Todd at a book signing, make sure you take the kid, he is wonderful! All of his books give very positive messages to kids and are lots of fun! This book, in particular, makes a great gift for any dad or granddad.

I loved the Mommy book so much, I borrowed the Daddy Book from the library so my husband could read it to our daughter. This one was just a fantastic as the mommy book. The illustrations are simple and very bright to catch the attention of the child. The message behind it is great. It shows different daddies doing different things and really captures diversity among various people. It's such a wonderful book for dads to read to their children.

Just as I said about Parr's Mommy Book, this is so sweet and cute. Daddys do all sorts of different things, and this book shines light on how great diversity is without bring preachy about it. This book is tender and fun to read.

Love this whole series by Todd Parr-- they encourage children both better understand traditional and non-traditional dads and to foster open communication about their relationship with fathers and father-figures in their life. Ideal for families where dad travels.
