Father's Day Board Books

Since I didn't post any board book recommendations for Mother's Day this year, I wanted to make sure to post some Father's Day recommendations. Here are two. You can also find a previous Father's Day post here.

1. Daddy's Girl by Helen Foster James & Illustrated by Estelle Corke

This came out in board book format in April and it's adorable!! After all, what could be cuter than a board book about a tea party with Dad? With illustrations that remind me of the Fancy Nancy series, Daddy's Girl celebrates that special father-daughter relationship with an abundance of treats, fine place settings, and of course, tea! Inadvertently perhaps, Daddy's Girl also encourages imaginative play and meaningful, face-to-face interactions with family.

A board book for all seasons, Daddy's Girl is especially meaningful on Father's Day.


2. Roald Dahl My Dad is Fantastic. Illustrated by Quentin Blake

A Father's Day board book like no other, My Dad Is Fantastic will have little ones hanging on every word (and illustration) as they hear how clever, kind, wise, fantastic, giant, mischievous and amazing (and let's not forget funny!) dads can be. I'm not sure how I feel about the page that says a dad can sometime be a "twit!" but I suppose it's meant to highlight that no one is perfect (not even dads).

For all current and budding Roald Dahl fans, My Dad Is Fantastic is sure to elicit smirks, smiles, and laughs from little ones and Dad alike this Father's Day.

Happy reading!
