You might have a favorite Channing Tatum role, or two. He's definitely had some memorable performances!
But if you ask the charismatic actor, producer, and director what his favorite role has been? He'll tell you it's being a Dad.
His daughter Everly, who loves sparkly, rainbow-y things, was the inspiration for Tatum's Sparkella book series, which added the title of #1 New York Times-bestselling author to his resume.
Tatum's third book in the Sparkella series, The One and Only Sparkella and the Big Lie, was just released.
In this latest book, Sparkella — who has "borrowed" a toy from a friend — needs a little help from her dad to learn the importance of honesty and taking responsibility when you make a mistake. It's a charming story that illuminates a little girl's wonderful relationship with her dad, making it a perfect gift for Father's Day.
Plus, since there aren't many children's books that feature single dads, the Sparkella series offers a valuable addition to bookshelves.
We also love the illustrations by Kim Barnes. They are bright and cheerful and add extra dimensions to Sparkella's journey of learning about empathy and honesty — a journey that can be appreciated by readers of all ages and backgrounds.
It will be easy to 'spark' the next conversation about the importance of honesty and taking responsibility by reading The One and Only Sparkella and the Big Lie with your kids.
