Writer Mike Adamick is many things. Nationally lauded dad blogger. Acclaimed nonfiction author of the Dad’s Book of Awesome series. Now he is tackling young adult fiction with The Adventures of Crash Adams.
Adamick talks with us on the latest Modern Dads Podcast about the evolution of Crash Adams, a character he created as a role model for both boys and girls. Crash is already garnering great reviews like this one on GoodReads.com:
“A solid adventure book that my 10-year-old son and 8-year-old daughter can both enjoy reading on their own!” wrote reviewer Kim Bongiorno. “Crash Adams is a great example of kids taking charge of their lives, and the small moments in them.”
We also ask Adamick about the new Star Wars character Rey and the controversial toy company decision to leave her off store shelves — a topic he blogged about that caught the attention of television producer and writer Shonda Rhimes.
The Parents’ Phrase Book author Whit Honea also returns to the podcast this week to suggest parents re-think labeling certain things for boy and other things for girls.
