Father’s Day is approaching and for the readers in your house we have a couple of cute stories about fathers to read to your children. Every family is different and with the rise in divorce, there has been a rise in blended families. Both my husband and I have been blessed to come from a line of committed marriages and intact families, but are aware that there are others who have not been similarily blessed. That is why I chose to review one of the following books, even though it doesn’t apply to our family.
The first book is titled, Dad and Pop: An Ode to Father’s and Stepfathers by Kelly Bennett (Retail $15.99). Even though it was written for stepfathers, like my older daughter said, it could easily be applied to grandfathers too, especially for younger children who cannot yet read the difference in the title of the book. Knowing that there are many blended families, this book discusses the differences between Dad and Pop, but also shows the best similarity – both fathers love the child. At least that is all of our hope in the best case scenario of what a great stepdad feels towards a child that is not their own.
The second book is titled, Did My Mother Do That? by Sharon Holt (Retail $15.99). This was a little story about a conversation a little girl has with her father at bedtime. She asks many questions about how she was born and what her mother did with her when she was a baby. It ends with the father telling her that the day she was born made him and her mother the the happiest mommy and daddy in the world, to which the little girl responds that she was the happiest baby in the world!
My oldest daughter loved the illustrations in this book and she’s a teenager!
All of our children love to be read to and all of them enjoyed these two books. They are short for the younger ones attention span and short for those just learning to read by themselves. Cute little stories about dads and family.
These books are hardcover books with dust jackets and are available at any major bookstore.
