It's rabbits, but there's the dad in Guess How Much I Love You, by Sam McCartney (and then there's the whatever-sort-of-relationship between Bartholomew and George in Virginia Miller's books)

I know it's all sort of implied, but the teller of the Just So Stories is one of my favorite Dads in kidlit. For little ones, the dad in Pete’s a Pizza! has got to be one of the best. I'm awfully fond of Little Bobo, which has an absolutely terrific uncle, but a pretty good Dad. McBroom, of McBroom's Ghost, is a good Dad, too. I don't know if the Dad in Abiyoyo counts as a good Dad, exactly, but he's pretty cool. I liked Pod Clock from The Borrowers, too.
And for one last choice, the avocado-crazy dad in The Snarkout Boys and the Avocado of Death.

Thanks,
