This Sunday is Father’s Day, a day to appreciate and spend time with our fathers. In our opinion, there’s no better way to do that than by sharing some quiet time with a story. This Father’s Day, we’re celebrating one of the most challenging and rewarding parent-child relationships: the love between father and daughter. We’ve got some some great recommendations for the dads and daughters in your lives, and they make great gifts because the fun and quality time are built right in.
Going For a Sea Bath
Is there a more contentious time between parents and kids than bath time? Leanne thinks not. Bath time is boring. It’s annoying. It’s a pain. Luckily her father might have just the right idea to make Leanne’s bath time fun, exciting and amusing. He runs down to the sea and brings back one turtle. Then two eels. Then three clown fish. But can one good idea go too far when it leads to ten octopi? This silly, lighthearted adventure highlights the the goofy, good-hearted fun of a father-daughter relationship and will surely inspire dozens of giggles!
Bad Pirate & Good Pirate
Moving from the tub into the open sea, meet Augusta and Barnacle Garrick, a daring father-daughter pirate duo. Captain Barnacle has firm opinions about what makes a great pirate: members of his crew must be saucy, selfish, brainy and rotten. But good-natured Augusta has ideas of her own. Will her own resourceful acts of daring prove to her father and all his mateys that she can be selfless, fancy and a great pirate?
Although father-daughter relationships aren’t always easy, Augusta and Barnacle demonstrate that parents and children can disagree sometimes, but still love and appreciate each other in the end. Even if they’re scurvy rotten seadogs.
We recommend a father-daughter visit to your nearest indie bookstore to check out these, or any of our other, titles.
