I noticed recently that almost all of the books we have feature maternal caregivers. Where are all the daddy books? We have classics like The Runaway Bunny, and adoption centered books like I wished for you and A Mother for Choco, and books that feature brown faces like I Love My Hair, and Please Baby Please, but of all of the books we have only one, Baby Dance, that features a loving and nurturing Daddy figure. I know that there must be some out there, but a quick search yielded either books for kids with no mother (i.e. two daddies or a single dad) or books that reinforce the Dad is away working all day but comes home for bedtime and is fun to "do" with rather than "cuddle and comfort" stereotype. I know that there isn't going to be a classic and wonderful book for every family situation, but still. I'm curious what is out there that reflects the daddy who is home more, and an equally viable option for comfort and nurture to the mommy.
Any ideas/suggestions internet?
