Todd Parr's book, The Daddy Book, tells young children their daddy might be different from the father next door or the father across country, but they all love their child(ren). It creates a warm bond between the child(ren) and daddy.
The illustrations consist of the bright, primary colors for which Todd Parr is known. The figures with Parr's text are lively, loving representations of human fathers.
“Some daddies wear suits, some daddies wear two different socks.” “Some daddies work at home, some daddies work far away” Yet, “all daddies like to watch you sleep.”
