How do you help your children celebrate Father’s Day?
Older kids can enjoy activities which produce their daddy happy; hiking, fishing, playing catch or watching sports together. They may get creative and create a special card, a cake or breakfast in bed.
Younger children might not be able to take part in all these tasks so what better way to enjoy time together than by reading a book with daddy.
Gator Dad, A Brave Bear, and Peppa Pig and the Camping Trip are 3 new picture books printed in 2016 which explore the bonds of father and child.

A Brave Bear
By Sean Taylor
It’s easy to be a courageous bear with your dad beside you.
The atmosphere was hot.
The shade was sexy.
And my father said, “I feel a pair of sexy bears is just about the hottest thing on earth.”
But I thought a fantastic idea.
I said, “If we go to the river we could dab and cool!”
However, the journey to the river might not be that simple.
There is the grassy area to go across.
Then the active part to push.
After that, you have got to leap from rock to rock.
We played and cooled down.
And I said, “I feel that a set of wet bears is most likely the wettest thing on earth!”
This sweet story of a daddy bear and his courageous cub is improved by Illustrator Emily Hughes. Her soft colours and enchanted examples are inspired by picture books from the 1960’s and 70’s.
Peppa Pig is a global, award-winning TV feeling made by Neville Astley, Mark Baker and Phil Davies that surfaced in 2004.
Peppa Pig and her brother George are extremely excited. They’re going on holiday!
In actuality, the camping trip is filled with surprises.
Ride together with Peppa and her family as they find camping in a camper van which becomes a boat. They travel to Duck Land, have a nature hike and cook their dinner over a fire. But the best aspect of all is sleeping in daddy’s old tent under the stars.
Celebrating Father’s Day June 19th or simply spending a normal day with daddy is a special time if you’re trekking, camping or just being a silly gator.
