Aww! Jimmy Fallon Pens His First Baby Book

10/20/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

It’s the magical moment most parents secretly wish will end in a win for them — baby’s first word!

But then it happened: first-time father Jimmy Fallon‘s daughter Winnie Rose gave those coveted bragging rights to mom Nancy Juvonen Fallon.

Now the Tonight Show host is doing his part to ensure his fellow fathers don’t miss out on the milestone by publishing his second children’s book, Your Baby’s First Word Will Be Dada.

“This is one of the few celebrity books that you can tell was actually written by a celebrity,” Fallon, 40, jokes.

The sweet picture book — available June 9 — serves as a hilarious how-to on coaching your kiddie to show Dad some love, with cows, sheep, horses and mice prompting their pint-sized mini-me‘s to say, “Dada.”

10/03/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

Whether you’re headed to work, going on a trip or just running to the store, separating from your toddler can sometimes be a heartbreaking challenge.

Trust us: We’ve been there.

Recently, that hard lesson hit close to home for model mama Josie Maran.

After the mother of 2-year-old Indi Joon and 8-year-old Rumi Joon realized she was having a tough time easing her youngest daughter’s worries, Maran enlisted the help of Twigtale, a personalized picture book that helps children understand sensitive situations at an age-appropriate level.

“I made this Twigtale book for my daughter, Indi, to help with separation anxiety,” Maran tells PEOPLE. “I travel so much for work and I wanted her to be assured that when Mommy leaves, it is never for long.”

B.J. Novak knows how to make grownups laugh, but now he wants to help parents make their kids giggle too.

“I would always read books to my friends’ kids when I would visit them and it struck me how much power the kid has over the reader. They basically just hand you a script and you have to read every word. I thought there must be something funny in that,” Novak explains to PEOPLE.

“So I thought it would be funny if kids saw [a] book as playing a prank on the reader and has them saying all these ridiculous and funny things.”

The result of the actor’s idea is his new children’s tome, The Book With No Pictures, which is already a big hit with his young fans.
