Five Books for Dads to Read to Their Children (Age 7 and younger)


While dads and moms alike can and should read a variety of books to their children (experts say at least 30 minutes a day), there are some books that highlight the special bond between dads and children. We’ve included the Amazon Smile link to each of these books, so if you decide to purchase them you can choose Adoption & Beyond as your nonprofit beneficiary, and Amazon helps by donating to us!
