Looking for best bedtime story ever? Of course, any story a parent takes the time to read to their child, sharing time together, and instilling in them the love of reading is the best bedtime story ever..
But what if there was a bedtime story written about the 2004 Red Sox, specifically written, illustrated and geared towards children?
Well, look no further. Authors Tom Garcia and Karun Naga, two fathers who founded Daddy’s Heroes, writing children’s books that are “inspired from memorable moments in sports history that fathers love.” Their hope is that more fathers will read to their children if they are reading stories that are special to them.
The 2004 Red Sox: The Curse is Broken is the newest and 3rd installment from the Daddy’s Heroes children’s books series. Available on amazon.com and through the Daddy’s Heroes website, the book will be available on June 1st–Just in time to be the prefect Father’s day Present!
Not a Red Sox fan? The 1st book in the series, Gibby’s Homer
The 1988 World Series is perfect for the Dodger fan, or perhaps the Dad in your life is a Mets’ fan? Book 2, The ’86 Mets, Buckner & The Bambino is self-explanatory, but would be a great book nonetheless. (Just not in my house).
I had the opportunity to read The 2004 Red Sox: The Curse is Broken, and I thoroughly enjoyed the lovely and charming illustrations, and the delightful telling of one of the greatest sports events in history. The story tells of “Courageous Curt” and his bloody “red sock” and how he and Big Papi and “Johnny D” lead the Red Sox from being down 0-3 in the ALCS, to winning their 1st World Series in 86 years…
The cost for the 40 page book is $9.95, and on the Daddy’s Heroes website, there are some specials where you can get a “my daddy reads to me T-shirt” and all of the books for one low price.
So, if you were looking for a great gift for a father, or father to be, any one of these neat story books would be perfect! Check them out!
