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!
