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 and 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!

Every Dad is so special! Each father has a unique gift to share and something special to teach their children. The cute little boy in this book is so proud of the things that his Dad knows.
I love the rambunctious wild nature of a Dad. Dad's are great for sitting on their shoulders, wrestling, horseback rides, and playing ghost in the graveyard. This book is a tribute to all those special moments.
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 true connection to nature for a father and his daughter.
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.
