Cool Dad Job: Children’s Book Author, Early Childhood Policy Expert
Cool Dad Vibe: Sweet Wonk
Cool Dad Bona Fides: Minh Lê has dedicated his life to improving the lives of kids. His day job is as a Harvard-educated educational policy wonk, which is cool, but not nearly as cool as his job writing children’s books (and writing about children’s books). Lê has written two acclaimed titles: Let Me Finish!, about a boy who is constantly interrupted when trying to read, and Drawn Together, about a boy who visits his non-English speaking grandfather and connects with him through drawing. He’s branching out with his current project: a comic book for DC entitled Green Lantern: Legacy. Lê is also focused on making sure his two sons are happy. One imagines they must be.
