Using creative ideas and proactive approach to parenting interwoven with his personal account of being a new dad, author Pete Densmore highlights why the first 100 days of fatherhood are critical for a dad-to-be or a new dad. The book showcases 35 ideas, illustrated with photographs, that Dad can creatively do for his wife, baby and himself.

A recent survey by the Pew Research Center found that Americans expect dad to be more of a moral teacher and emotional comforter than a breadwinner or disciplinarian. About six-in-ten Americans (58%) say it is “extremely important” for a father to provide values and morals to his children. Roughly half say it is extremely important for a dad to provide emotional support (52%) and discipline (47%). And just 41% say providing income for his children is one of a father’s most important responsibilities, according to the nationally representative survey of 1,004 adults conducted June 6-9, 2013. Densmore helps answers the question: "How can a new dad be dependable, and still fun?"

This is the 5th book award that DADspirations has received in 2013. Other awards include a Global eBook Award, Readers' Favorite Award, Telly Award, and Indie Excellence Award. DADspirations was also featured twice in 2013 by PEOPLE, as one of the hottest baby products on the market and as a recommended Father’s Day gift.
