If you’re like me, you’re probably wondering, “when is Father’s Day 2012?” Turns out, here in the good old USA it’s celebrated on the 3rd Sunday of June each year; so Father’s Day in 2012 is on Sunday, the 17th of June. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, what’s a good gift for dad?
In my humble opinion one of the best gifts for dads (and grandads) are books for them to read their little ones. Here are some great books for Father’s Day from Amazon.com. Disclaimer: if you buy about 50 of them I may earn enough commission to purchase a venti latte at Starbucks. 😉
I believe reading to ones children is among the most important things parents can do. When our daughter was a baby my wonderful wife suggested I read to and put her to bed each night to ensure daily quality time with daddy. I took her recommendation, and I highly recommend it, dads!
I really don’t care if you buy a book via my little ‘store’ here. But I do care if you read to your kids. Libraries and free online book-swaps are great ways to keep a fresh stock on hand. Happy Father’s Day!
p.s. If you are reading this post after Father’s Day, I will update it with book recommendations for the next upcoming holiday, e.g. right after Father’s Day I’ll put up some good books for the 4th of July.
Do you read to your kids? What are your favorite books?
