Happy Father’s Day! Our six children are blessed with a wonderful, amazing, giving dad who loves nothing more than to spend time with them. He makes silly jokes and does funny dances, he plays games and drives them everywhere, he builds LEGO and watches dance shows and I can count on two hands the times he missed the bedtime routine. On this special day of celebration, here’s a sweet bedtime story with a twist from EK Books:

In Bedtime, Daddy! (RRP $24.99) the roles are reversed as we follow the adorable Little Bear who, at the end of a long day, sets off to put his big cuddly Daddy Bear to bed. As good parents know all too well, bedtime routines are tricky and you have do it exactly right…

All the elements of bedtime are there: The delaying, the messy tooth brushing, a story or two or three (but the extra ones a little rushed), the stalling, the strange questions, the mysterious monsters and unquenchable thirst, the open door, the sudden hunger and then that final stretch of waiting around the corner for the breathing to slow down.

This putting people to bed business is surprisingly exhausting! In his final moments of waiting Little Bear is getting pretty tired and his eyes are slowly closing… Thankfully parents tend to outlast their little ones (most days!) and there comes big, strong Daddy Bear to pick up Little Bear and tuck him in for the night.

With its cute illustrations, catchy lines and funny jokes Bedtime, Daddy! makes the perfect bedtime tale for young sleepyheads. Kids just love the familiarity of Daddy Bear’s bedtime antics and my tribe had a good giggle as they recognised their own delaying tactics on each page. What a blessing good dads are, on Father’s Day and every other day.

You can find ‘Bedtime, Daddy!’ in leading book stores across Australia.

With Mother’s Day just a week away most children have their precious mamas on their mind and are excitedly crafting handmade treasures for the big day. My kids on the other hand are completely focussed on Hip Daddy, who will soon go on a work-trip to Japan. They are lucky enough to have their dad home at 5pm most days so they are a bit nervous about having to miss him, even if it is only for week. Especially miss 6 is finding it hard and she has shed quite a few tears reading this lovely book with her daddy:

With My Daddy (RRP $14.99) is an absolutely gorgeous picture book for young children that celebrates all the wonderful things that make dads so special. Everyday activities like eating and cleaning, playtime and bath time turn into a fun adventure when you do them with daddy.

Our little girls adore the colourful illustrations featuring a range of father-child animal duos and they also love the rhyming story which encourages¬†them to read along and guess what is coming next. If you’re looking for heart-warming story to settle down with at the end of the day this book is a real winner (and of course a great gift idea for Father’s Day too).
