Because I’m Your Dad is out this month and I am so excited to get my hands on it for my boys and their father. The story written by Ahmet Zappa the talented guy who thought up the story “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” and other great accolades.
Because I’m Your Dad is a fab whimsical picture book for children. The book was written with the idea that father’s could share it with their children. Here’s a page from the book. I love the playful, lighthearted tone of the book that also show’s a dads love for his child in a fun way.

My boys love this book and would often say “dad you do that”. A great reminder to them how special their time with dad is. With Father’s Day June 13, 2013 this makes a great book for a dad and his children. I also love this book for a dad to be.
Take a look at the trailer to the book.
