That's What Dads Are Made For

That’s What Dads Are Made For—the first title in our brand new series of books—follows a girl named Coco as she discovers what makes her dad special. From singing duets on car rides to enjoying TV time together, she learns to celebrate the simple moments that connect them in big ways. Her journey will help your young reader see the little things their dad does to show their love.

Written by Amanda Glass, That’s What Dads Are Made For invites moms, dads, grandparents, aunts, and uncles to connect through light-hearted conversations, and it’s just as perfect for bedtime as it is for learning time!
