This week’s featured dad is Sean Wylie.
He lives in Oak Park out in the western suburbs of Chicago.
Sean is a working father with 2 kids.
What is your favorite children’s book, and why?
‘If I Ran the Zoo’ and ‘Sneetches’ by Dr. Seuss. I have a long-running passion for almost all Dr. Seuss books (I brought some with me to college). The illustrations and concepts are so rich with imagination, while still carrying powerful lessons that are useful for both kids and adults. Stories like the ‘Butter Battle Book’, ‘Bartholomew and the Oobleck’, ‘Sneetches’, ‘You’re Only Old Once’ take on difficult topics, but still maintain a magic and innocence.
What is your favorite thing about being a dad?
My kids enthusiasm for my company. They are still very young and they give me such looks of joy when I come home or even just pick them up from their cribs in the morning. It is intoxicating to feel so needed.
