Best Picture Books to Celebrate Father's Day

Dads are most ordinary men turned by love into heroes, adventurers, story-tellers, and singers of song. Pam Brown

Here are some stories of love and ordinary men filling the admirable roles of Fatherhood. We acknowledge that not all families have a home with a mother and a father present and to support these homes we have included A Father Like That by Zolotow for boys who wonder and dream about what it would be like to have a father. This title ends on a hopeful note that can be empowering for any boy lacking a good male role model in the home. As well, we have included books featuring Grandfathers.
