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 Bluey: Daddy Putdown based on the hit TV show, or Stop the Dad Jokes for a dad who thinks he's funny!

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
