​This month's book feature shines light on I'm Proud of You. This heartfelt picture book from the Today show co-anchor, Craig Melvin, is a tribute to fathers, sons, and the childhood milestones that inspire pride in every parent. Complemented with lively illustrations by Sawyer Cloud, I'm Proud of You is an uplifting depiction of the special bond between dads and sons, showing that through life's ups and downs, a parent's love is a reassuring constant. Perfect for Father's Day!

Here are a few of the charming illustrations you can find throughout this title. And if you'd like to watch the full interview, where Craig's 10 year old son Delano finds out why it was important for his dad to write this book, click the link below.


We also asked Sawyer to share her thoughts on what it was like to bring this book to life, and here's what she had to say:
"I’m Proud of You made me feel nostalgic about the lovely relationship between a father and his children. Craig’s text was so sweet and he was very respectful of the illustration process. I personally think that this book is important as it reminds us what fatherhood really means, and how soft and lovely Dads can be."

We can't wait to see this book fly off the shelves. In the meantime, if you'd like to work with Sawyer, or any of our other artists, reach out to our agents today to discuss more details!
