Books for | Father's Day

A selection from my bookshelves of books that would be a lovely present for Father's Day or as a story to read on the day itself.

Here are the books I chose:

  • My Mum and Dad make me Laugh by Nick Sharratt - maths ideas with Mum and Dad, looking at patterns
  • Papa, please get the moon for me by Eric Carle - Dad gets to the moon to try to bring it back for his little girl to play with - one of my favourite author / illustrators
  • The Great Big Book of Families by Mary Hoffman and Ros Asquith - this is lovely, lots of pictures and simple words so you can talk about all different types of families
  • My Dad if Brilliant by Nick Butterworth - illustrations of all the funny and amazing things a Dad can do...
  • Cuddly Dudley by Jez Alborough - not strictly about a Dad but my childrens' Dad loved to read it to them!
And some "alternative" stories for Father's Day:

I chose:

  • Guess how much I love you by Sam McBratney and Anita Jeram - Big Nutbrown Hare could be mum or dad or anyone close to Little Nutbrown Hare in this beautifully illustrated story.
  • Tickle Monster by Paul Rogers and Jo Burroughes - for anyone whose little one loves being tickled - and great for Father's Day too.
  • Clarice Bean My Uncle is a Hunkle by Lauren Child - I love Lauren Child's illustrations and this one is about her favourite uncle
Do you have any favourite stories for Father's Day that I haven't included here - I'm sure there are loads more...
