Wordsong Boyds Mills Press,
From morning routines to bedtime rituals, Daddy Poems provides a playful, yet poignant look at the laughter and love shared by fathers and children. Educational journalist John Micklos, Jr., himself a father of two young children, has gathered a rich collection of poems that includes selections by noted poets such as X. J. Kennedy, Nikki Grimes, Juan Felipe Herrera, and Mary Ann Hoberman, as well as original poems by Micklos and others. From piggyback rides to wild and wacky baths, Daddy Poems offers a wide range of poems that dads (and others) will enjoy sharing with children again and again. It's a perfect gift book for dad everywhere. As best-selling author Jim Trelease says in the foreword, "It is especially appropriate that this collection is meant to be read to children by their Dads. Outside of hugging a child, few things bring parent and child as close together physically, emotionally, and intellectually as reading."
