Books about Dads

Every Day is Father’s Day when you’re a Dad!

It seems like Father’s Day is always fast approaching. Here are some old favorites and also some titles that you may not have come across yet. I hope you enjoy my selection of gift ideas for all those awesome dads out there. Our Top 2 Books about Dads are:


1.  Daddy Hugs

Author: Karen Katz

Ages: 0-3 year olds 

This was the book I gave my Hubby on his first Fathers Day. Its perfect for under 2’s and details all the different ways Dads can hug their little ones. I especially love Peekaboo, pyjama hugs! Daddy loves to give Baby hugs to say “I love you!”. Now Baby and Daddy can cuddle and count along with this hug-and-read book perfect for Baby’s teeny, tiny hands.


2.   My Dad

Author: Anthony Browne

Ages: 2-5 year olds 

Anthony Browne is one of my all-time favorite authors. This book has been in our collection since the kids were very young. Its adorable illustrations always bring a smile to my kids’ faces and it is regularly taken off the shelf around Father’s Day and Hubbys birthday.


3.  The Secret Father’s Day Present

Author: Andrew Clements (Author), Varda Livney (Illustrator)

Ages: 3-5 year olds 

A cute lift the flap book that Dads will enjoy sharing with children. The story is based on two children planning their Dad’s Father’s Day present of kindness vouchers and the havoc that is created for poor ol’ Dad along the way. A bit of a cheeky story which is always a hit in my house.
