It's almost #FathersDay! And what better way for your kids to celebrate their love for their dads then with some phenomenal new books? I didn't even post for Father's Day last year because I truly was at a loss for favorite picture books to share. But this year I am so excited to suggest two new releases that I just adore. If you like poetry, we are loving My Daddy Rules the World, with poems both written and illustrated by Hope Anita Smith. At once tender, funny and powerful, this poetry collection is a sentimental celebration of fathers by a Coretta Scott King honor winning poet. If you also love sweet stories about the lengths a dad will go to to protect his child, then you must check out Daddy Long Legs, written by Nadine Brun-Cosme and illustrated by Aurelia Guillerey. Reminiscent of The Runaway Bunny, a particular favorite of mine from childhood, Daddy Long Legs is a French import that describes one father's valiant efforts to assuage his son's concerns about the challenges that might prevent dad from picking him up at kindergarten. It melts my heart with each and every read, and we love it's whimsical illustrations, too. These are the perfect two books for your child to give Dad on Father's Day, and we hope you love them as much as our family does!
