Each Father’s Day, I try to give my husband a book that he and Shaan can enjoy together. I’ve been looking online for something to give him this year, but hadn’t really found anything that “wow”ed me yet. This morning, Shaan and I were reading some library books together and one of the books was titled, “You are My I Love You.” It is a PERFECT Father’s Day choice!
The pictures show illustrations of a parent bear and a child bear. I asked Shaan if he thought the parent was a mommy or a daddy and he said daddy. I think I agree with him since the parent bear is wearing all blue. I really like the book because it includes some Christian elements in it. Each year, I try to get books that not only express an earthly father’s love and importance to a child, but also incorporate God and our heavenly Father’s love as well (with references to praying, reading the Bible together, attending church together, etc.). Books I have given my husband on previous Father’s Days include:
Here are some lines from the book I just ordered for this year’s Father’s Day (You are My I Love You):
“I am your parent; you are my child. I am your quiet place; you are my wild.
I am your calm face; you are my giggle. I am your wait; you are my wiggle.
I am your dinner; you are my chocolate cake. I am your bedtime; you are my wide awake.
I am your finish line; you are my race. I am your praying hands; you are my saying grace.”
It’s a precious book with endearing illustrations between the Daddy bear and the child. Definitely a cute Father’s Day gift idea if you are still looking for something:
