“My Daddy’s in Jail” by Anthony Curcio
“Written by an ex-con. Endorsed by PhD’s, school principals and judges. Awesome book with an inspiring message: You are loved and you will get through this.” -BERT BURYKILL, Vice Magazine
There are nearly three million adults in the U.S. alone that are in prison or jail. Many of these being parents that leave behind unanswered questions with their children: What is jail? Why did this happen? Is it my fault? Is my daddy (or mommy) bad? Do they love me? My Daddy’s in Jail is a story of two bears who have a father in prison. The book is narrated by a very odd cockroach.
