“It’s All About Daddy” (published by AuthorHouse) is a poetic celebration of a daughter’s love for her father. Written by Jody Esi Otu, this collection explores the vast universe of human emotion and experience and reveals in poetry what happens when it converges with love, appreciation and death.

Otu shares that the book was inspired by the passing of her own grandfather. She identified with her father’s sadness and sought to give him comfort through poetry. What results from her effort is a heartwarming anthology that sweeps across a rich and vivid landscape of subjects. It is comprised of a breathtaking range of messages, most are for fathers but there are others which can be attributed to both parents. Reflective of momentous occasions such as Christmastime, Valentine’s Day, Father’s Day and many others, all the poems are an avenue into which a daughter has beautifully expressed her love and appreciation for her father. She also delves into more serious subjects such as death, dying and racial stereotypes to create a reading experience that is both honest and compelling.

Poignant and profound, “It’s All About Daddy” is a poetic tribute to one of the most challenging and beautiful professions in the world: parenthood. This read will comfort the heart and uplift the spirit.
