Jimmy Fallon is once again using his comedic skills to reach out to kids! The Tonight Show host has written a new picture book to be released next year!
Feiwel and Friends, an imprint of Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group, announced today that it will be releasing Jimmy’s new book, titled Your Baby’s First Word Will Be DADA.
The father of one-year-old Winnie Rose wrote a children’s book, Snowball Fight!, back in 2005, but this is the first one he’s written since he became a dad. He uses his own parenting experience in the book. According to the official press release, the picture book is “a hilarious account of every father’s secret campaign to ensure that their babies’ first word is Dada -– not Mama!” Throughout the story, illustrated creatures — from cows, sheep, and horses to mice and frogs — try to get their babies to say “Dada,” first. Baby Winnie’s first word was “Mama,” so it’s clear that Jimmy had some feelings to get out with this book! All in good fun, of course!
“This is one of the few celebrity books that you can tell was actually written by the celebrity,” Jimmy said in the press release. “And my baby personally approved of the beautiful artwork by Miguel Ordóñez.” Your Baby’s First Word Will Be DADA will be released on June 9, 2015.
