Hi everyone! Isn’t June such a great month? School is out for the kiddos, the warm weather is finally hitting most of the country, summer officially begins, and we have the big daddy holiday of the year—Father’s Day!
In celebration of the knowledge and experiences that dads and other positive male role models can share with kids, we’re proclaiming June as Read with Dad Month at Wise Owl! With ‘dad’ representing dad, as well as any of the many possible father figures in your child’s life.
Along with our planned reviews, all month long we’ll feature books that are great selections for the guys to share. Why are they great? The book may be even more fun when read with deep, funny voices that men can do really well. It may be about cars, tools or other things that men typically find especially interesting. Or it may be a story about a dad, grandpa, uncle, brother, cousin, teacher or another great guy a kid can look up to.
Look for the Read with Dad Month logo on the review and then head out to your local library or bookstore to pick up a copy. And, if you’re looking for a Father’s Day gift, any of these books would be a great choice.
What a great way to share a wonderful experience and foster a love of reading.
