  • Praise for Todd Parr:

    * The I Love You Book was an instant New York Times bestseller

    "Parr preaches the message of self-acceptance and tolerance of others." -- SLJ

    "Parr focuses on acceptance and individuality and encourages readers to do the same." -- PW

    "It's rare that a children's author appeals to adults, but when it happens, it's usually magic; Dr. Seuss, Shel Silverstein... Well, I've found another to add to the list: Todd Parr." -- Kansas City Star

    The Daddy Book:
    "The Byron Barton of feelings and relationships offers a gallery of Dads at work and play, all drawn with thick lines and intense, contrasting colors against monochromatic backgrounds. The message is one of unity in diversity." -- Kirkus
