Father’s Day

Available in SeeSaw June

Sunday is Father’s Day, so it’s time to recognize all of the amazing dads out there! I love my dad and I’m excited to travel back home to see him on Sunday.

When it comes to books, my dad is one of the most prolific readers I know. He always has two or three books going at a time and the bookshelves in his office are packed tight—and arranged in alphabetical order. There is nothing that my dad appreciates more than a good book, and I know that I can always go to him for some great recommendations. My dad also loves running. He runs every day and has finished ten marathons! So when thinking about a gift to get my dad for Father’s Day each year, I know I can’t go wrong with a newly released book or the latest athletic gadget.

But from experience, I know that what most dads want is to spend their special day with their kids. Going to a museum, playing baseball in the park, taking a trip to the beach, or cooking a gourmet meal are just a few fun Father’s Day activities. At my house, we usually have a family-style dinner in the backyard where we all go around the table and say our favorite thing about our dad.

Reading a good book is another great Father’s Day activity. When I was younger I used to read with my dad almost every day. If you’re looking for some fantastic “Dad” reads, check out Tyrannosaurus Dad by Liz Rosenberg and Froggy’s Day with Dad by Jonathan London (both available in Club Shop). These titles are perfect for Father’s Day and completely dad-approved.

  1. There is apparently a bunch to know about this. I consider you made some good points in features also.

  2. Thanks for the book suggestions. I like your family tradition of going around the table to talk about dad; I think it is something we will start doing in our household.
