The children’s picture book “Dad’s Bald Head” by University of Toledo professor Paul Many, is scheduled to be featured on Sunday, Jan. 3 on “Just One More Book!” a thrice-weekly podcast which promotes literacy and children’s books.
“Dad’s Bald Head,” illustrated by Kevin O’Malley and published by Walker & Company, tells the story of a young boy who is dismayed when his father shaves himself bald, but eventually comes to embrace his dad’s new look. “Dad’s Bald Head” previously received national attention when it was featured on the Today Show.

Many teaches journalism and creative writing at UT and is the author of another picture book “The Great Pancake Escape,” which was a Los Angeles Times‘ Childrens Book of the Year.
“Just One More Book!” hosted by Andrea Ross and Mark Blevis, is named after the plea of one of Blevis’ children to read them “one more book” before bedtime. The show is recorded at a coffee shop the hosts frequent and has featured authors such as Daniel Pinkwater, Gary Soto, Laurie Friedman, Jack Gantos and Jack Prelutsky.
