Honour your Dad’s individuality this Father’s Day with a gift from the heart.

‘There are all kinds of Dads,’ writes Justin Ractliffe in his illustrated children’s book Dads: a Field Guide. ‘Big dads, little dads. Sporty dads, lazy dads. Boxer dads, undie dads…’ he continues. And, indeed, no matter what pigeonholes we can assign each of our fathers, they all come with their individual quirks and eccentricities to render them truly individual. So, just as there are all kinds of dads, there are all kinds of ways to say ‘Thanks, Dad’ this Father’s Day. Here are some books to do just that.
