My Dad is an animal

status: Selecting a publisher

My Dad is an Animal is a direct representation of the kinds of things I do with my children and the goofy imaginative play we do together.  But the book is more than just about my relationship with my kids... it aims to be inclusive and celebratory of all dads who play with, adore and inspire their children.
