Settle in with your little ones and enjoy quality time with these Dad-tastic reads!

We love our dads! They are THE BEST at reading silly voices for characters and making great sound effects. Dads make story time super fun. 

Celebrate the dads in your life this Father's Day with a fun book like My Dad is Fantastic by Roald Dahl and Quentin Blake or Bluey: My Dad is Awesome, or give him a not-so-subtle hint with My Dad Snores by John Williamson and Peter Carnavas.

Not only is story time with dad loads of fun, it also has an amazing lasting impact on our budding young readers. "Researchers found that when fathers read to their children at home, the child’s language development increased as they grew older." - Murdoch Children's Research Institute, FirstFiveYears.org.au
