Picture Book Gifts for Fathers Day

June 18th is Fathers Day in the UK and in previous years we have given Daddy a picture book as a gift. 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!

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!

  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
