Win-It Wednesday: Because I’m Your Dad Prize Pack (5 Winners!)

by Tara Kuczykowski on May 15, 2013 · 144 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday, with 24-hour giveaways just for you!

"Because I'm your dad, you can have spaghetti for breakfast, French toast for dinner, and rocky road ice cream in the bathtub..."

In a text that's both playful and loving, a father expresses his hopes and dreams for a one-of-a-kind relationship with his child. In "Because I'm Your Dad," by Ahmet Zappa, whimsical monster characters bring the silly and sweet scenes to life and keep the book universal. The book's ending, a moving tribute to the author's father, guarantees intergenerational appeal. Today everyone can grab these FREE printable Fun Time with Dad Coupons sponsored by Because I'm Your Dad.

Ahmet Zappa is the son of late rock musician/composer Frank Zappa and, as he puts it, "My awesome mother, Gail." Because I'm Your Dad is both a tribute to his happy childhood and a promise to his daughter, Halo. Ahmet grew up with a learning disability and now writes books to help children discover how wonderful reading can be. Through his production company, Monsterfoot Productions, Ahmet has developed several television shows and movies, including "The Odd Life of Timothy Green."

Today, five (5) lucky Deal Seeking Mom readers will win a Because I'm Your Dad Prize Pack, which includes:

  • Kid’s Bongo Drums

To enter, share a simple way you try to infuse extra happiness into your child's life.

I try to be present with the kids each day. It is really easy to listen to them while face booking or cleaning but I dedicate time to be 100% present with them and do something they enjoy like going outside or playing video games.
