Co-authored by Karma’s World visionary Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and the show’s Head Writer Halcyon Person, “Daddy and Me and the Rhyme to Be” is a humorous and heartwarming picture book about the special bond between father and daughter. Along with the upbeat wordplay, the book is brought to life by the colorful illustrations of Parker-Nia Gordon. Told with humor and heart, the story follows Karma as she sets out to write her daddy a rap for his birthday all on her own, the only thing is she can’t quite make it perfect. Thankfully, Karma soon realizes that she never has to do anything alone as long as she has daddy by her side. This heartwarming story is an entertaining read for the whole family and a loving celebration of the bond that unites fathers and daughters around the world.
“Vivid and vibrant, Daddy and Me and the Rhyme to Be delivers on fun wordplay, adorable illustrations, endearing characters, and positive diverse representations, making it a fine addition to the Karma’s World brand.” – via Stephanie Snyder, Common Sense Media
