Daddy's Mini Me
Daddy’s Mini-Me is a children’s book about the proud moments of a father as he cheers on the early developmental stages of his baby. It is a 32-page, fully illustrated, hardcover children’s picture book written for ages: newborn to 4 years old. Daddy’s Mini-Me was illustrated by Ted M. Sandiford, a Saint Lucia artist who is a father of 6 children.
For the first time ever, I found myself in a Father-Son bonding moment. On that same day, I made a promise that history will never repeat itself and I will always be there for my children. After the birth of my son, I decided to take a year off work so that I could capture every moment of his life. Daddy’s Mini-Me was created based on these proud and special moments that I was able to witness during his early developmental stages.
