This Father’s Day celebrate the loving bond between father and child with cozy cuddles and a good book. No matter what the dad’s reading style is, when a father tells a story or introduces his children to one of his favorite books, it creates a real bond between them. It’s a special, shared moment, so perhaps that’s why so many kids decide to honor their dads on Father’s Day with the gift of a book. See below for a list of Father's Day books. 

 

My Dad is the Best Playground

This joyful story celebrates Dad as the funnest person in the world and the best playground ever! He's the highest swing and a great climbing wall, he's a bouncing trampoline and merry as a merry-go-round. And then, when playtime is over, Dad is the best for reading and snuggling with before bed.

 

When Dads Don't Grow Up

This book is about dads who aren't worried about looking goofy or getting their hair wet - dads who still remember what it's like to be little. Don't be fooled. They may look like grown-ups on the outside, but underneath they're just like you...kids!

 

I Love You, Grandpa

Little Bear is getting older, and that means he is ready for new adventures. It's not easy to try new things, but Grandpa Bear is there to help. This heartwarming picture book will help show little ones that it's okay to be afraid, and that sometimes, love is all you need to be brave.

 

Gator Dad

From seemingly mundane tasks such as grocery shopping to more active pursuits like a romp at the park and fort-building, a loving and playful father alligator shows his gator kids that the simplest pleasures done together can make for an incredibly fun day. 

 

Love is a Family

This enchanting, beautifully illustrated story shows children that family should not be defined by mother, father, and child, but by love.

 

The Very Best Daddy of All

Some animal daddies comfort their babies, or hold them tight, or face every danger for them. But the little boy in this heartwarming story knows his daddy does all of that, and more, for him and is the very best daddy of all.
