Father’s Day is to honor those important men in your child’s life.  A Grandparent or an Uncle or any father figure who takes the time to care, teach or kiss a boo-boo. They all deserve to be recognized. Those men that have always been their for your kids.


The bond between a Father and child is special. A father is the first man to show you respect.  The way you learn respect is by example. Your father shows his partner and children respect. Your father teaches you to have respect for others.


For your daughter, it’s important to see how her father treats her mother.  This is her first way of understanding how a woman should be treated.  For your son, they will learn how to grow up and treat others they care for.

Father’s will come to your rescue, dust off your pants and help you to stand up again. They will teach you that failure isn’t the end.  But instead a stepping stone to success.


Father’s will scold and admonish but they will comfort and will love you when the fight is over.  They will forgive your mistakes and help you grow from them.  A father will be there when you need him and even when you don’t.  A loving father will show you his emotions and his affection for you.  Those dad hugs, kisses, and that special dad squeeze mean so much.


These books are sure to become a family favorite.  Here is a list of Dad books to read with your Children
