i just love liz climo. i reviewed her mother’s-day-book You’re Mom: A Little Book for Mothers last year, and even though it was a book of illustrated sentiments rather than a ‘proper’ cartoon collection, i was still charmed by it, and this father’s-day companion book is no less delightful.

it’s more of the same—a little gift book celebrating fathers and fatherhood in all of its forms, and gets all the inclusivity points for spotlighting all the different ways a person can become a father, as well as the range of traits and roles a father can fill.

plus, dad jokes.

it’s not a gift my own personal father would cherish, because he’s not into the cutesy, but i bought it anyway, for me, to add to my climo-collection, since i still think she draws the best red pandas

i appreciate a lot of the things she says about dads, and i maybe got a little bit touched in my feels once or twice, but mostly i giggled at these silly animal-dads.

it’s maybe a little twee for the dad or father figure in your life, but it’s sweet without being schmaltzy, and i will continue to adore liz climo and support her in whatever she does.

this feels gauche, but when i announced i was starting a blog, everyone assured me this is a thing that is done. i’m not on facebook, i’ve never had a cellphone or listened to a podcast; so many common experiences of modern life are foreign to me, but i’m certainly struggling financially, so if this is how the world works now, i’d be foolish to pass it up. any support will be received with equal parts gratitude and bewilderment.
