Because I’m Your Dad
by Ahmet Zappa
About the Book: This is a cute story about all the things a Father will do for his children. Some unrealistic – like skipping school to fly to Australia – but that represent every Father’s desire to do the very best for their child while having fun.
About the Author: The son of late rock musician/composer Frank Zappa and, as he puts it, “My awesome mother, Gail.” Ahmet grew up with a learning disability and now writes books to help children discover how wonderful reading can be. He and his wife, Shana, are currently collaborating on a new book series, Star Darlings. Through his production company, Monsterfoot Productions, Ahmet has developed several television shows and movies, including “The Odd Life of Timothy Green.” Ahmet, Shana, and Halo live in Los Angeles, California under a rainbow with their three fur goblins Sandwich, Luna, and Figgy.
My thoughts: I absolutely loved this fun children’s book. Even more so, because it sounded funny with me reading “Because I’m Your Dad”, so I got to pass it over to Mark. Listening to a dad read this story to his children, and know that they truly would do anything for them, was very heart warming.
The Princesses really got into this book, and have enjoyed Mark, and even myself reading it to them. Thought they love looking at it on their own as well.
Because I’m Your Dad would make a wonderful Fathers Day Gift. I personally love to give gifts that Mark can enjoy with the kids on Fathers Day, since they are the reason we get to celebrate him (similar thoughts for mothers day). There seems to be very few books specifically for Dad’s to read to their children, so I’m pleased to add this to our collection.
