Books to Prepare Kids for Father’s Day
A young girl wants to spend Father’s Day with her dad doing all the things he loves. Instead, they do things she loves and like any good father, he pretends they are his favorite things too.
A fun book to read with Dad and the whole family. Lift the flaps and discover what surprises the kids have for Dad and Grandpa. Mercer Mayer is a favorite author of the KinderTown team!
Perfect for the 2-5 set and as your child gets older this book will also make a good beginning reader. While many would assume this is about a father and son, there is no language to say so. Only blue overalls give any hint of gender. We think this book will work well for daughters.
Rhyming story based on the poem “The Night Before Christmas”. Two young children help Mom prepare a special Father’s Day surprise. We like how this book shows the act of service as a gift. Contains a lot of great ideas that Dad will appreciate without costing money.
This book focuses on many things a father and child do together. It has simple short sentences for the beginning reader and yet profound enough to emphasize and strengthen that relationship.
