Daddy, There Is
A Noise Outside

Oder Today! Parent/ Teacher Guide

Kenneth Braswell’s newest venue “Daddy, There’s a Noise Outside,” takes the complex issue of protesting and breaks the conversation down so that a 1st grader can understand.

The story begins when two children are awakened by noises in the middle of the night coming from outside the window of their inner-city neighborhood. Both their Dad and Mom spend the next morning explaining to them what was taking place in their community..

You can download our book's Parent and Teacher Guide for free. This guide book serves as a platform to help our children understand what it means to stand up for something they believe.

Fatherhood Matters

Research suggests that presence of father figure directly impacts the lives of their children. Children who spend quality time with their fathers are:

    • more likely to enter college66%
    • less likely to be incarcerated80%
    • more likely to have successful relationships75%

Community and Family Focus

Research shows that children with involved, loving fathers are significantly more likely to do well in school, have healthy self-esteem, and exhibit positive social behaviors compared to children with uninvolved fathers. In addition, committed, responsible fathering during childhood has been shown to contribute to children’s math and verbal skills, curiosity, and emotional security.

Fathers Incorporated works actively and diligently to involve fathers in the lives of their children through a variety of programs, activities, training, technical assistance, and cause marketing media campaigns.

  • So many hearts could be healed by this sweet tale of a loving dad making peace with the absence of his own father. Beautifully written and illustrated, “Daddy’s Family Tree” is a poignant story that needs to be shared with children everywhere, especially those struggling with the legacy of fatherlessness.
