Books For Dads

Is it just me, or does it feel like it should still be last summer?? I can’t believe Father’s Day is in a couple of days. In case you got caught and you’re still not quite prepared to shower the men in your life with gifts on Sunday, here are some great last minute ideas. Because you just can’t go wrong with dad books.

When I was pregnant with Harper, The Mister and I went to Aruba for our Babymoon. We spent the entire time laying in the sun, eating (a lot), sleeping, and trying to prepare ourselves for our impending arrival by reading as many books as we could. One of the standouts was Dude, You’re Gonna Be A Dad. It’s a hilariously real take on fatherhood, and also pretty informative. Perfect for the new Dad-to-be.

Now that our bundle of joy is a toddlin’ little girl, it warms my heart to see how much she loves reading with her daddy. They have a lot of favorites and this one is sure to make the list. Because toots are a dad’s love language.

And of course, we can’t forget about our own dads. My dad is known for saying pretty funny stuff, so this book is right up his alley.

PS – all of these are at Amazon, so thanks to Amazon Prime, they can be on your doorstep in plenty of time. (You’re on your own with the card, though.)

Thanks for stopping by!

    So sweet! What a great collection and a great way for dad to spend time with the kids!

    This is awesome! I love the “Toot” one. Having a daughter, our bookshelves are often filled with stories of princesses and fairies. I’d be good for us to get a few of these to make dad’s time reading more enjoyable. Appreciate the suggestions!

    We have the DADA book by Jimmy Falon and it’s pretty funny. Ella enjoys it (and I’m pretty sure her first word was “yum” … she’s not really saying “dada” or “mama” yet.

  • Christie

    Great idea! Eeek, I almost forgot that it’s Father’s Day this weekend!
