Do you have something fun planned for Father's Day this year? How about sharing a book with dad? This special day is a great reminder of the importance dads play in their children's literacy development.
Children learn by watching and imitating. Be a positive male role model for the kids in your life by reading and sharing stories. This shows children that you think reading is valuable, achievable, and, most importantly, fun!
Looking for ways to share your enthusiasm for literacy beyond books? Check out the wonderful ideas from the folks at Reading Rockets, such as reciting nursery rhymes, singing songs, playing games with letters or words, and telling stories about your childhood.
Stop by the library and check out one of these fantastic books about awesome dads:
- Day Out with Daddy by Stephen Cook

- My Dad Thinks He's Funny by Katrina Germein, Illustrated by Tom Jellett
