father's day books for kids

June 14, 2012

I thought I'd share some of my picks for father's day books--This first one is one we recently discovered and loved, the rest are ones I've shared before. :)

Ocean Wide, Ocean Deep
by Susan Lendroth
A little girl waits for her dad to come home after a long trip at sea. Beautifully illustrated and a touching story.

Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me by Eric Carle

I just love this one.

Daddy Kisses
Perfect for babies and toddlers.

Also, Daddy Cuddles

How I Learned Geography
I love this story of how a father changes his young son's life with a simple map of the world.

The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish
I really like this one, but I should mention that Ben does not. I guess he takes issue with kids swapping their dad's for goldfish. :)

Does Ben not like it because of how the dad is portrayed? Like someone who wouldn't even realize he is in a rabbit cage reading his newspaper? I mean I can see how that might be a bit offensive, but it really is quite funny how the book plays out.
Btw, thanks for the night time routine details-- we might need to change ours up a bit around here, the small people are up very late.
Back on topic, I'm gonna have the find that Uri Shulevitz one, I love his book Snow.
