Every person has their own individualized characteristics that make them unique. Every Dad has one thing in common (being a parent to a child); but the similarities stop there. When children think of dads, they might have a general idea of what all dads look and act like- but no two dads are the same! The colorful, expressive portrayals of dads by illustrator Javier a Alvarez proves that Dads don’t all behave, dress, or think the same way. Some dads have blue hair, others have facial hair, and there are even dads with no hair. This book acknowledges different family situations such as adoption and households with two dads.
Some Daddies teaches children ages three to seven that diversity is beautiful and should be celebrated. Carol Ekster writes joyfully about the unconditional love between a dad and their child. Young children are naturally curious about people that look or act differently than what they are accustom to; ignoring these differences will just cause confusion and maybe lead children to become hyper-focused on superficial details. By talking openly about cultural, behavioral, and physical differences, children will learn that differences make the world a more fun, interesting place to live.
