I started thinking about Father’s Day earlier than most because my hubby blew Mother’s Day out of the water this year. I’m talking fancy dinner, time alone without my son on my heels… the whole nine years.
So at this point I’m thinking, I need to get Father’s RIGHT! I’m a quite insulted when people just forget all about Father’s Day. It’s just not right! Good Father’s should be celebrated. Plus, when you celebrate bad Father’s they are certain to feel horribly and hopefully do better. At least your conscious will be clear.
My guy, who coincidentally doesn’t read my blog regularly (a shame right), is an amazing husband and father. I make that point so you know I’m not trying to get brownie points.
So many stories lean in to the awesomeness of mommies (and rightfully so), but dad’s are strong, fearless, providers, and comforters. My husbands peaceful demeanor is an amazing balance to my constant state of mental confusion.
He’s working full-time and taking classes at night. My 2yr old knows how to say “daddy at work.” It’s only a season and this sacrifice is hard on all of us. So I wanted to find books that portray ‘dad’ as the hero he really is.
I’ve included an amazing list of books that celebrate all things dad to share with your kids. Great children’s books about dads.
These are a few that I will be adding to his library:
This one is all about parents are cool people to. Think of it as a journey down memory lane before adulting.
As a creative soul, no collection is complete without a book of poetry.
Classic board book for toddlers and it makes a great bedtime story. All about Papa Bear and Baby Bear.
definitely for an older child with a better attention span than my 2 year old. You only have so many years to enjoy that active imagination. Why not read a book that taps into playing pretend AND reminds kids that dad is the real hero.
What are favorite books about dads? Any favs? Please share
