Book Review/Giveaway: My Daddy Wears a Different Kind of Suit to Work. Ends Feb 28th
My Daddy Wears a Different Kind of Suit to Work written by Josephine Amy Dituri and Joseph Dituri
About the Book: My Daddy Wears a Different Kind of Suit to Work is a full color illustrated children’s book that allows you to share the marvels of the undersea world with your children through radiant pictures and a heartwarming tale. Translated by the 13 year old author to Spanish in the back, this novel approach to a dual language book is the epitome of a language lesson.
My Review: Have you ever wondered what kind of job your father has, is it an unusual job? Most kids think if their father isn’t wearing a business suit to work then his job isn’t important. This story is told by a 14 year old girl whose dad works underwater.
She goes on to describe what his work as a Diving Officer is. The special suit needed to protect him from the cold water and the sea creatures. The decompression chamber used to treat divers that are sick. How the oceans provide shipping routes and phytoplankton which provides oxygen. How you feel cooler near the beach because the ocean absorbs heat, and how important it is to protect the oceans.
This wonderfully illustrated book has 25 fun-loving pages in English and in Spanish.

My name is Ella Johnson. I started Mymcbooks to promote reading. Mymcbooks is a part of Memorable Children Books & Gifts. As a former teacher, I know that making basic education fundamentals interesting to children can be challenging. Education can be fun, exciting and captivating for children with the right learning tools. So our goal is to “make learning interesting and fun” for the children while they learn by introducing them to fun books with colorful and captivating illustrations.
In 2009, I decided to start the giveaway program giving away free school supplies at random to 2 winners. I also started a monthly free giveaways for books and gifts.
August 2010, I extended the free school supplies from 2 to 5 winners at random on my blog and also give away 20 bags of school supplies to familes in need at Chick-fil-A in Brandon, Florida during their family nights. I intend to continue with this program to help parents.
In 2011, I started writing reviews on children’s books then giving these books away free on Mymcbooks Blog. I increase the number of books we giveaway free to help support parent. My goal is to give away 500 books a year.
Mymcbooks blog is always looking for ways to give kids free books. So I started Mymcbooks Birthday Library http://mymcbooksbirthdaylibrary.wordpress.com/
My goal for 2012 is to giveaway 300 books to children.
Books Given in 2011: 315
Books Given in 2012: 380
Book Given in 2013:
Memorable Children Books & Gifts is also in the business of supporting other small businesses.
