Jimmy Fallon, host of NBC’s The Tonight Show, is also a father and his hilarious picture book reveals what everyone already knows: that fathers wage a secret campaign to ensure that their babies’ first word is “Dada!” Here he shows us just how it’s done…
Jimmy Fallon lives in New York City with his wife, Nancy, and their two daughters, Winnie and Franny. He received glowing reviews for Your Baby’s First Word Will Be DADA, but when he looked around his house and realized everything was MAMA, he went back to work. If you have a three-year-old, they’ll love the pictures. And if you have a one-year-old, they’ll love how it tastes.
