10 Amazing Father’s Day Books that Both Kids & Dads Will Love


I lost my dad when I was an infant so Father’s Day was always a day that approached with nervousness. However, my brother, sister, and I were extremely close to our Pa.

We had a blast celebrating him each year. It is important to remember that – as cliche as this sounds – it truly does take a village to raise a family.

Celebrate with whomever you see as your dad this year. In the meantime, however, we have curated an amazing set of Father’s Day Books for Preschoolers. What better way to celebrate!

This is one of my favorite stories, so it had to be on this list.  Owl Moon makes a great bedtime story.  It is a peaceful story of a father and his daughter connecting on a midnight walk through the woods. 

If you haven’t been on a walk through the forest at night you may be able to imagine what a magical experience this can be.  Owl Moon is a story of a true connection to nature between a father and his daughter.

A Tale of Two Dads

This book builds on the natural curiosity of children.  When a little boy at school learns his friend has two daddies he is naturally curious.  He has many questions for his friend.  A Tale of Two Daddies is approached with a beautiful non-judgmental and approachable nature.

We have all been in a situation where a child has surprised us with something!  These surprises are often very sweet and sometimes a bit peculiar. 

The natural kindness that this exudes from a child is something worth fostering and encouraging as they grow.  This story is an adorable example of this caring nature.
