Father’s Day is just around the corner and what better way to show Daddy how much he is appreciated than giving him one of these awesome father’s day books. Every year my kids give their dad a book about how much he is loved. Each year they are so excited to give it to him and read together cuddled together on the couch. In true toddler fashion, they typically spend months reading this very same book over and over again.

Thank you so much for this great list of books! I gave Because I’m Your Dad to my son after he gave his 2 year old son a set of drums. It is a perfect fit for the two of them, and I enjoy reading the book to my grandson. For my daughter’s husband I chose Hero Dad, as he is in the Army and sometimes sent far away to “work”. I also think this book is perfect for my son-in-law and his darling son! We enjoy reading this book together, as well.
I’m so glad you love these books as much as I do! I love giving books as gifts too!!
