Father's Day Gift Idea: Books Your Little Ones Can Read with Daddy from Macmillan Children's

If you're looking for ideas for your little ones of what to get Daddy for Father's Day, why not encourage bonding time together through the reading of stories? Macmillan Children's Publishing Group has some beautiful books about daddies that are perfect for story time. Check these out...


Daddies Are Awesome
by Meredith Costain
Loving and thoughtful, playful and daring, cuddly and caring -- daddies are awesome. This gentle rhyming text celebrates the special bond between father and child.

What I love about this book: The charming illustrations by Polona Lovsin that depict all kinds of daddy dogs and their pups will charm both kids and parents!

Saturday with Daddy
by Dan Andreasen
Saturday with Daddy is the best day of the week! A little elephant and his daddy spend the day running errands, playing together and having a cookout. The simple text, with its emphasis on the step-by-step process of the day's events, together with charming artwork, celebrates a child's bond with a parent. An excellent choice for preschoolers.

What I love about this book: Saturday with Daddy has a lesson for parents, too: It's the simple activities -- such as eating outdoors and singing to the radio -- that your kids will remember best!


Daddy Depot
by Chana Stiefel
Lizzie loves her dad, but he tells the same old jokes, falls asleep during story time, and gets distracted by football while Lizzie does her ballet twirls. When she sees an ad for a store called Daddy Depot, she decides to check it out -- and finds dads of all kinds! Will Lizzie find the perfect dad? Join her on this sweet and silly adventure that celebrates fathers with lots of love.

What I love about this book: Daddy Depot teaches children that even if Dad isn't perfect, he's the perfect dad for THEM!

My Daddy Rules the World: Poems about Dads
by Hope Anita Smith
Told through the voice of a child, Anita Hope Smith's My Daddy Rules the World collection of poems celebrates everyday displays of fatherly love, from guitar lessons and wrestling matches to bedtime stories, haircuts in the kitchen, and cuddling in bed. These heartwarming poems, together with bold folk-art-inspired images, capture the strength and beauty of the relationship between father and child.

What I love about this book: My Daddy Rules the World has poems about all kinds of daddies, such as those who serve in the military, stay-at-home dads, and daddies who snore!
