Picture Book Gifts for Fathers Day

In previous years we have given Daddy a picture book as a gift on Fathers Day, there are so many great picture books about Dads! We’ve already written a blogpost about some of our favourite picture book fathers but there are so many more that we’ve written another which includes some more recently published picture book dads.

Daddy’s Sandwich by Pip Jones and Laura Hughes: Ruby decides to make a sandwich filled with all Daddy’s favourite things. She includes some amazing ingredients but we like her final ingredient the best!

Daddy’s Little Star by Janet Bingham and Rosalind Beardshaw: Daddy and Little Fox discuss how high the sky is. We love the way that Daddy Fox patiently helps Little Fox’s answer his own questions and makes learning fun!

A New Home for Little Fox by Janet Bingham and Rosalind Beardshaw: Daddy and Little Fox discuss animal habitats in this story which provides the perfect backdrop for young readers to learn about animal homes too!

School for Dads by Adam & Charlotte Guillain and Ada Grey: What happens when a child needs to teach his / her father how to behave? We love this role reversal story which turns a familiar school situation on its head – the fathers go back to school to be taught by their own children!

I Want My Daddy! by Tracey Corderoy and Alison Edgson: I Want My Daddy! portrays a wonderful relationship between a father and his son. Daddy is always there when his son, Arthur, needs his help whether it’s castle building or needing a hug!

The Dressing-Up Dad by Maudie Smith and Paul Howard: The Dressing-Up Dad is a fun loving, very unique Dad, he isn’t ‘ordinary’ like other dads! Danny and his dad have great fun dressing up together but when Dad becomes an ordinary dad for a day, Danny learns how important it is to be encouraged to be yourself.

Raj and the Best Holiday Ever! by Seb Braun: We really enjoyed Raj and the BEST DAY EVER!, but we absolutely love this one. It’s the perfect read for this time of year when everybody is starting to think about summer holidays. It’s an amusing portrayal of the outdoor pleasures of a camping holiday, lots of things go wrong!

Do you give picture book gifts for Fathers Day? Which picture books would you add to our list?

Thank you to author Tracey Corderoy for suggesting Mr Bear from Peace at Last by Jill Murphy 🙂

  1. Thank you for including both of my Little Fox books, Catherine. Sadly, it’s a bit hard to find ‘A New Home for Little Fox’ these days, but copies of the new edition of ‘Daddy’s Little Star’ are ready to hop off the shelves. There’s another lovely daddy in ‘Keep Love in Your Heart, Little One’, by Giles Andreae and Clara Vulliamy. Happy Father’s Day!

    • You’re very welcome Janet! It would be lovely if A New Home for Little Fox could be republished too 🙂
      Thank you for the Keep Love in Your Heart suggestion. The book’s cover is gorgeous.

  2. I am not a child and don’t have kids, but I love reading children’s books sometimes. I think School for Dads sounds so cool. #readwithme

  3. This is a lovely selection of books, Daddy’s Sandwich is on our wish list. We gave I Love My Daddy as a first Father’s Day present 🙂 #readwithme

  4. I love these books, when my children were young we would take it in turns each evening, I would read to the girls one night and Dad would read to the boy, then we would swap the next night. Dad loved reading to them and he’d have really enjoyed these books. I miss those days and wish I could have some grandchildren to read to.

  5. This is such a lovely selection of picture books. I particularly like the sound of Daddy’s Sandwich and School for Dads. Might have to get these for Father’s Day presents from the children! #MMBC
