JEFF BRIDGES AND DAUGHTER ISABELLE BRIDGES-BOESCH BRING BOOK TO DARK HORSE
The moments people remember from childhood are the small, precious ones. Isabelle Bridges-Boesch and her father Jeff Bridges bring those small moments to life in their new children’s book Daddy Daughter Day.
Written by Isabelle Bridges-Boesch, with illustrations by Jeff Bridges himself, Daddy Daughter Day is the story of a simple, fun day from Isabelle’s youth when one morning, Belle wakes up and declares the day “Daddy Daughter Day”! As the day turns into an adventure, the whole family comes along for the simple joy of being together.
“This book has been inside of me for years. When I finally shared the idea with my dad he was instantly supportive and agreed to do the illustrations. Working on this project together has felt like one long Daddy Daughter Day because we really got to spend some time connecting and collaborating. I am so excited to share this book with anyone who wants to have a peek into what it was like to grow up being my dad’s daughter as well as anyone who is curious about creating their own Daddy Daughter Day (or Mommy Son Day, Sister Brother Day…)”—Isabelle Bridges-Boesch
“When your kids are young you can say, “Hey, let’s play pretend, or play a game.” When they’ve become adults, spending time together is often challenging. Everyone’s busy with their lives, with careers, with work. Daddy Daughter Day gave my dear daughter Isabelle and I a reason to spend time together and have an adventure.” –Jeff Bridges
“Jeff and Isabelle have created a book that will touch the heart of any reader. Daddy Daughter Day is a reflection of the warmth and love shared between a father and daughter, and it is our good fortune they have chosen to share with us. This book is a joy!”—Mike Richardson, CEO of Dark Horse
