Books: Father's Day Reads that Dads and Kids Can Enjoy Together

Because I'm Your Dad by Ahmet Zappa
Reading is priceless when Dads and Kids share these books on Father's Day and every day...


In Ahmet Zappa’s first picture book for children, Because I’m Your Dad, a dad like no other promises to give his kid a childhood like no other.

Whimsical monster characters bring the silly and sweet scenes to life and keep the book universal. The book's ending, a moving tribute to the author's father, guarantees intergenerational appeal: “Because I'm your dad, I will do all of these things for you and more…because that's what my dad did for me.”

Both a tribute to his happy childhood and a promise to his daughter, Halo, for a one-of-a-kind relationship, “I wrote this book for anyone who is a father, has a father, or hopes to someday be a father,” says Zappa. A perfect book to read on Father’s Day, or any day.

Watch the musical trailer for Because I’m Your Dad on Entertainment Weekly:


In the “Ricky’s Dream Trip” book series, Ricky and PopPop go on adventures together in Ricky’s dreams, visiting far away places and long ago times. While the stories are fanciful and imaginative, they are full of real historical and scientific facts presented in a way that interests children. The books are a labor of love the real-life PopPop, Bill Stevenson, created for his grandson Ricky.

It's a fun Father's Day gift, but which Dream Trip to choose? The books take Ricky and PopPop on trips through the solar system, to Colonial America, Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome. Take the fun Facebook quiz to find the perfect book for Dad or Grandad to share with his kids or grandchildren on his special day.
