A dad took his 2-year-old’s most memorable words and illustrated them beautifully.
His work went viral, and soon he was fielding emails from a notable book publisher.
It wasn’t just Bruckner and his daughter’s words that filled the book, which just recently hit shelves. He also drew on custom designs he’d been making for fans all over the globe.
Turns out, parents everywhere were pretty familiar with the unique and twisted brand of honesty all toddlers possess.
While days with young children can be long and sometimes frustrating, these tiny and hilarious moments are part of what makes the whole thing worth it.
“The world we live in today … I think everyone can agree it’s not great,” Bruckner says. “The news brings you down. But even people that don’t have kids, they say, ‘Thank you for this.'”
