2. Daddy and Me by Karen Katz

Daddy and Me
If you are a home improvement kind of dad, this book will be a favorite. A little boy hangs out with his father as dad works on a special project. You then can lift the flaps to uncover the hidden tools that the father needs to complete his surprise project. I really enjoyed the time reading this book and lifting the flaps and hearing the kids identify tools they had seen me use at home.

4. Daddies Give You Horsey Rides by Abby Levine

Daddies Give Horsey Rides
Rhyming text describes the many and varied things that fathers do, like teaching you how to ride a bike, reading your favorite books over and over, and comforting you when you wake up from a scary dream. I love the variety in this book, and reading with the kids about the things that I do with them.
