When a children’s author becomes a YouTube sensation, you know kids are loving his work!
Children eight years old and younger love Lexy the RAP DAD! The Friendly Fables author is making a name for himself by combining storytime with rapping which is fun and entertaining. Who knew dads could be this cool!
It all began when Lexy was faced with a decision. Not happy with his corporate job and always wanting to be a writer, he dreamed of one day being able to follow his dream. When his infant son had a medical condition requiring extra care, he left his job to become a caregiver and began writing children’s stories.
Fast forward to today and Lexy’s alter ego, RAP DAD, is generating buzz among kids and parents for his awesome stories and rap renditions. So much so that his debut kids rap album based on his books reached #1 on the iTunes children’s music chart in Canada! Plus, his YouTube Channel has taken off as well with more than 500,000 views, and he’s even gone on tour!
Read and rap-along with the RAP DAD at bedtime, in the car, or during virtual parties. Check out his fun and hilarious best-selling titles and rap songs including Farts book/Farts rap sing along and The Dino Rap book/Dino Rap sing along.
For National Reading Month, Good Day LA interviewed Lexy the Rap Dad noting how he is helping kids step up their reading game with fun and engaging raps.
Lexy is passionate about giving back to the hospital that helped his young son by donating 100 percent of proceeds from his book Heroic Hospital Quest to The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. Lexy also regularly performs his sing-alongs at Sick Kids and Grandview Children’s Centre.
