While dads and moms alike can and should read a variety of books to their children (experts say at least 30 minutes a day), there are some books that highlight the special bond between dads and children. We’ve included the Amazon Smile link to each of these books, so if you decide to purchase them you can choose Adoption & Beyond as your nonprofit beneficiary, and Amazon helps by donating to us!
Because I’m Your Dad
Dads can be playful and silly, as well as loving and strong. This book’s cute monster characters express the special bond between dad and child.
This sweet book about baby animals with their dads is great for a first board book to help dads and children snuggle up together for some cuddly reading time.
Bippity Bop Barbershop
In Bippity Bop Barbershop, a little boy goes with his father to the barber for the first time and is scared about the new experience. However, with the support of his dad and the other men in the barbershop he learns to be brave.
I Love You Daddy
Children of this age group are beginning to become more adventurous, but that doesn’t mean they’re not also a little bit afraid of new changes. This book helps children understand that being a little scared is normal, and love can help us feel braver.
Daddy Calls Me Man
While this book doesn’t focus solely on the relationship between dads and kids, its beautiful illustrations and simple rhymes help a child tell the story of who he is to his siblings, his mother, and his father.
