Father's Day Books

Here are some fun books about Fathers!

Day Out With Daddy by Stephen Cook
Day Out With Daddy

This is a favorite of our children. This is all about a fun day out with Dad and the crazy things that can happen :)

Daddies Are for Catching Fireflies (Lift-the-Flap, Puffin)

This book isn't just about dads, but moms and dads roles. The roles in this book are traditional, with mom home greeting children from school and dad teasing and playing.

Papa's Son by Kate McMullan
Papa's Song (Sunburst Books)

A book about helping a child fall asleep.

Daddy Hugs by Karen Katz
Daddy Hugs (Classic Board Book)

We love this book in our house, especially our youngest. She and my husband have a very special bond, so this is a favorite book of theirs.

Father's Day Thank You by Janet Nolan
A Father's Day Thank YouA book about the search for the perfect father's day gift.

Just Me and My Dad by Mercer Mayer
Just Me and My Dad (Little Critter) (Look-Look)
The Mercer Mayer books are timeless and great for the preschoolers and school-aged children. My son especially likes this one since it is about camping and he loves to camp with his dad.

My Father's Hands by Joanne Ryder
My Father's HandsThis is a sweet book that has a focus on gardening.

My Daddy Snores by Nancy Rothstein
My Daddy Snores

And because you need to have something fun, especially for dads, we have this book.
