Today’s book is by a man you may know for his first, or his last name.
Both are equally cool.
Ahmet Zappa is the son of late rock musician/composer, Frank Zappa. “Because I’m Your Dad” is apparently both a promise to his daughter, Halo, and a tribute to his happy childhood. The book is both loving and fun. In it, a father professes his hopes and dreams for a one-of-a-kind relationship with his child. Silliness and affection are both important components for me as a dad and in this book they are incomparable, much like the book’s ending which seems to be a tribute to the Ahmet’s father.
Here’s a little video with thoughts about the book from me and my son…

When my wife had her baby shower we asked for everyone’s favorite children’s books in lieu of the regular gifts. For his first couple of birthdays, we asked for books again instead of toys. We have a thing for books in this house.
And here is a little trailer for the book from Ahmet…
My son absolutely enjoyed this one. Usually, he’ll jump all over the story with questions or comments, and I love it when he does because I know he’s listening. But this time, he was entranced. Zappa speaks my language, and I think Finn picked up on how much fun I was having simply reading the book.
