It started with a need
From the moment I found out my wife was pregnant, I started collecting children's books that I wanted to read to my son. After reading him story after story, I quickly realized there were very few children's books that featured Black characters that my son could identify with. That's when I decided to write and draw my own, and Daddy Can was born.
Daddy Can is a celebration of the beautiful bond between children and their Fathers. It is a refreshing depiction of Black Fatherhood that is very rarely shown in books. I am excited to get Daddy Can on the shelves of homes, libraries, daycares, and schools, so that children of color can see these positive Black images as they seek to understand their place in the world.
