Book About Father’s of Color

Oh, Oh Baby Boy is a great book about fathers and sons of color.

Oh, Oh Baby Boy is a great book about fathers and sons of color.

I read found out about Oh, Oh Baby Boy and I’m thrilled! The publisher describes the book much better than I ever could:

Oh, Oh, Baby Boy! is a hardcover children’s book that explores the makings of a super dad by following a baby boy as he grows up to become a member of the growing fatherhood movement. This beautifully illustrated book follows a newborn baby as he grows up, laughs, plays, causes mischief, and makes friends. His father’s involvement is woven throughout the story, and depicted in nontraditional ways. The baby’s father cuddles, bathes, and cooks with his son, and re-enters the story when the baby boy eventually becomes a father himself, bringing the journey full circle.

I love that the book depicts the father (possibly Black, possibly Latino, possible Asian, possible Native American ….  perhaps mixed? It’s a person of color at any rate) doing non-traditional things with the son and that the story ends with the son becoming a father. It reminds me of The Lion King … Lol  in a good way, of course!

Anyhoo … pick up a copy for your family and send a copy to a family that you care about.
