11. A Wild Father’s Day by Sean Callahan – The kids and dad take the term “Have a wild Father’s Day,” quite literally, which makes for one wild and crazy day of acting like wild animals.
12. Biscuit Loves Father’s Day by Alyssa Capucilli – The sweet face of Biscuit the dog is always a welcome one at story time. This lift-the-flap book shares just some of the reasons we love our dads.
13. The Best Father’s Day Present Ever by Christine Loomis – It’s the first year that Langley Snail gets to buy his dad a Father’s Day present, instead of making one at home… if only he can get to the store in time.
14. The Secret Father’s Day Present by Andrew Clements – A fun and interactive lift-the-flap book has Sarah and James on the hunt for their father’s missing items.
15. My Dad by Anthony Browne – This is a particular favorite of mine because I — like many, I suspect — definitely exaggerated my dad’s skills when I was younger (“My dad wins every triathlon he races in,” “No, my dad actually is the best chef in the world”…. No, but seriously, he really is the best chef in the world). Sure to get some laughs out of the kids and dad at story time.
16. Daddy’s Girl by Garrison Keillor – From the classic storyteller and iconic voice of Garrison Keillor (long-time host of The Prairie Home Companion), this board book holds a collection of 3 songs all about the love between a father and a daughter.
17. My Daddy is a Giant by Carl Norac – This smartly-illustrated book captures the larger-than-life image children have of their fathers. I still think my father is better than any encyclopedia (okay, nowadays I suppose it would be Google instead of an encyclopedia).
18. Daddy Hugs by Karen Katz – Karen Katz’s board books have always been a favorite in our home. Simply sweet and a calming little book for bedtime with your little ones.
19. When Dads Don’t Grow Up by Marjorie Blain Parker – This book celebrates the playfulness of dads and their wonderful ability to let loose and monkey around like a kid.
20. I Love My Dad by Anna Walker – Little Ollie shares all the reasons he loves his dad. This is the type of charming, ageless book that is a keeper meant to be shared year after year.
