(This is my personal favourite out of the bunch. If you win I’m going to basically force you to pick this one. It’s the best.)

Amazon description:
Romp along with parent and child yetis, werewolves, giant lizards, and more as they stir up some monster-sized fun! Readers big and small, young and old, wild and tame, will roar with laughter and take this book by the horns, teeth, and fur… discovering that monsters and humans aren’t so different-especially in the ways they love each other.

Tell me a tattoo story 2


Tell Me a Tattoo Story
By Alison McGhee
Illustrated by Eliza Wheeler
Read my review here

Amazon description:
A bestselling author-illustrator duo join forces to create a modern father-son love story. The father tells his little son the story behind each of his tattoos, and together they go on a beautiful journey through family history. There’s a tattoo from a favorite book his mother used to read him, one from something his father used to tell him, and one from the longest trip he ever took. And there is a little heart with numbers inside-which might be the best tattoo of them all. Tender pictures by New York Times bestselling illustrator Eliza Wheeler complement this lovely ode to all that’s indelible-ink and love.

Amazon description:
From seemingly mundane tasks such as grocery shopping to more active pursuits like a romp at the park and fort-building, a loving and playful father alligator shows his gator kids that the simplest pleasures done together can make for an incredibly fun day.
Presented by New York Times bestselling author Brian Lies ( Bats at the Beach ), this heartwarming story demonstrates a series of very special ways children can connect with their fathers and should appeal to parents and little readers everywhere.



Letters to My Dad
By Lea Redmond
Read my review here

Amazon description:
This book of twelve letters (ten prompted, two blank) makes it easy for children of many ages—from tween to adult—to show Dad how much they care. Once filled out, sealed, and postdated, the letters become handwritten time capsules to give to Dad for Father’s Day, holidays, or milestone birthdays. When he breaks open the seals in the future, he will find a priceless keepsake.

commando dad new recruits


Commando Dad
By Neil Sinclair

Amazon description:
This essential guide to pregnancy offers everything the expecting father needs to know in the run-up to the birth, or “deployment day.” Packaged like an army training manual and written in guy-friendly, no-nonsense military speak, it presents month-by-month overviews of the baby’s development, the lowdown on pregnancy symptoms, tips for supporting the mom-to-be, a guide to prenatal care, and what to expect during labor and beyond. With expert advice, easy-to-follow information, and commentary from other first-time fathers, it’s the go-to reference for the dad-to-be who wants to prepare himself—mentally, physically, and emotionally—for the arrival of his new recruit.

A Perfect Father’s Day
By Eve Bunting
Illustrated by Susan Meddaugh

Amazon description:
I’m taking you out for Father’s Day,” Susie tells Dad.
“First we’ll go for lunch.”
“Good,” Dad says. “May I drive?” “Certainly,” Susie says.
She chooses the restaurant, and pretty soon Dad can see that she’s filled this special day with treats – treats for both of them! When they get back home, Mom’s final surprise (that isn’t really a surprise at all) is a perfect ending for the perfect day. ”
