Celebrating Dads

Celebrate Father's Day today with these books:

Because Your Daddy Loves You by Andrew Clements (Clarion Books 2005)

When things go wrong during a day at the beach, like a ball that drifts away or a gooey ice cream mess, a father could do a lot of things but always picks the loving one.

Day Out With Daddy by Stephen Cook (Walker, 2006)

A humorous story about the fun to be had when dad's in charge for the day. A young boy tells his own version of the day he spends with Daddy while Mommy is out of town, and Mommy vows never to miss all the "fun" ever again.

My Father the Dog by Elizabeth Bluemle (Candlewick Press, 2006)

Sure to inspire a few laughs! A young girl suspects that her father is really a dog because he performs such acts as fetching the newspaper and chasing balls.

Tickle Tickle by Dakuri Hru (Roaring Book Press, 2002)

A baby boy has lots of fun when his father plays with him. A good book to share with babies and toddlers. Originally published in 1997 as In Daddy's Arms I am Tall (illustrated by Javaka Steptoe and published by Lee & Low) Ken Wilson-Max's bold, bright illustrations bring a playful version bursting with love and energy. This one is good for sharing one-on-one or with groups.
