Happy Father's Day!

Some of the Corvallis-Benton County Public Library's youth services librarians' favorite stories about that special someone called Dad:

What Dads Can't Do by Douglas Wood, illustrated by Doug Cushman

Describes how dads show love by explaining all the things that they cannot do, such as sleeping late, keeping their ties clean, and reading books by themselves.

My Daddy is a Giant by Carl Norac

A little boy's father seems so large to him that he needs a ladder to cuddle him and birds nest in his father's hair.

Me and My Dad! by Alison Ritchie, illustrated by Alison Edgson

Rhyming text describes a day of fun and adventure that a bear shares with his father.

A Father's Song by Janet Lawler, illustrated by Lucy Corvino

In lyrical and charming verse, a father expresses his deep love for his child. With its warm text and lively illustrations that capture a fun day at the park, it's an ideal picture book for Father's Day sharing.
