Storytime – Father’s Day 2014

dads rockMany Australians observe Father’s Day on the first Sunday of September. It is a day for people to show their appreciation for fathers and father figures. In the lead up to their special day, the library runs storytimes featuring books about Dads  and a craft the children can give to Dad on Father’s Day. This year I made a card template for the craft activity – also see below for links to other great ideas.


  • ‘Some Dads’ by Nick Bland
  • ‘My Dad’ by Anthony Browne
  • ‘My Dad’s the coolest’ by Rosie Smith
  • ‘The Daddy book’ by Todd Parr
  • ‘My Dad thinks he’s funny’ by Katrina Germein
  • ‘Daddy is my hero’ by Dawn Richards
  • ‘Mister Seahorse’ by Eric Carle
  • ‘Daddy’s little star’ by Janet Bingham
