Father Knows Books

Here’s a trio of books about dads for babies and young children. Check these out of your local library or purchase at a bookstore or online to share a little bit about what makes dads special–just in time for Father’s Day!

papa-papaMama Mama/Papa Papa is a beautifully illustrated board book for babies about why little animal babies love their parents. One side shows all the helpful and loving things dads do for their tiny offspring.  Flip the book over for moms and this is really two-stories-in-one. Human children will recognize all the tender care parents give to babies throughout the animal kingdom. The rhyming text is delightfully evocative of the bond between parents and children everywhere.

papa-please-get-the-moon-for-mePapa, Please Get the Moon for Me is a sweet story of a father who loves his daughter so much, he’ll do anything for her–even pull down the moon to be her companion. This dad goes the distance–climbing tall mountains to retrieve his daughter’s heart’s desire. Eventually the moon wanes, but it returns to its place in the sky, perhaps offering a subtle lesson about letting go. Eric Carle’s classic illustrations give the book a folksy and warm feel. This tale celebrates the special daddy/daughter relationship and the power of dreams.

wild-dadsWild Dads! explores the roles of animal fathers in the wild. Interesting trivia about animal dads who care for their babies by keeping them warm, feeding them, and even in one case “giving birth”! Descriptions are clear and simple, yet informative. Toddlers and preschoolers will enjoy learning about these special wild dads.

  8. Internet marketing has become a complicated discipline that involves a great deal of theoretical knowledge in combination with applied techniques.
    If you do not develop this skill, you are going to find yourself stuck in thousands of half finished projects and an IM venture that won’t ever be a success.
    Instead target and focus your internet marketing campaign towards
