Pre-K Father Storytime
Intro: Mighty Dads by Joan Holub. Does it get better than a book about construction vehicles who are dads teaching their young construction vehicles how to dig and hoise? Lots of action build into this one too, as bulldozers roar, cranes reach, etc.
Be Glad Your Dad...Is Not an Octopus by Matthew Logelin. Sooooo funny, soooo excellent.
Gripping Read: Tad and Dad by David Ezra Stein. Maybe not so gripping, but funny and fun and very real somehow. I really identify with that frog.
Good Story: Froggy's Day with Dad by Jonathan London.
Good Story: Building with Dad by Carol Nevius Jones. Gorgeous storytime book, with graphic illustrations that fold down to allow for beautiufl views of the construction sights.
Thunderboy, Jr. by Sherman Alexie. SORT of about Dads -- he was named after his father.
Good Story: You Can Do Anything Daddy by Michael Rex. Nice Q & A format: "Daddy, if I got taken by pirates, would you save me?" "Of course, Son." (Picture: smiling son in PJs in the arms of ruffians with suit and tied Dad chasing after).
Science Bonus: Mister Seahorse by Eric Carle. Even if you have to skip a few pages for length, this one is just too perfectly Eric Carle to miss.
By Emma from My Little Three and Me
We traced the children's hands and cut them out, gluing them on to the monster and adding eyeballs. Much appreciated Father's Day card.
