Nobody Does It Like Dad

We all know that no one can give better piggyback rides, fly us in the air or play pretend better than dad. Let's celebrate the special dads in our life this Father's Day.

Mitchell's License features a little boy who doesn't want to go to bed, until Dad recommends Mitchell drive there. See Mitchell get his “car” ready and maneuver his way to bed. Make sure to check what else Mitchell and his dad are up to in Mitchell Goes Bowling.

Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me: The love of a father has no limits. Monica wishes she could play with the moon and asks Dad to get her the moon. Of course he does just that, waiting until it’s just the right size, he climbs a very long ladder to get his daughter the moon.

The bond featured in Papa and Me is truly beautiful. While Papá wants eggs, his son loves pancakes so they work together to make a special plate. Lovely illustrations showcase the teamwork of dad and son as they go through their day.

In When Papa Comes Home Tonight, a child waits excitedly for his dad to arrive. Although he’s been gone all day, the time shared playing, cooking, singing and reading a story before bed is magical.

Find even more ways to show your dad love.
