While being a dad can be a very rewarding experience, it is hard for some dads to connect with their children in ways that do not feel like drudgery. I have seen quite a few couples in which the man does not even read books to his kids at night. I can actually understand why this happens, given that so many kids books are boring and repetitive. So here are some books that I have read to my kids. As you might notice, I value comedy and science over all else when I choose books. Click on the links to order from the local library system. They are all for different ages.
“What if? Serious answers to absurd hypothetical questions” (This one is worth buying)
All four “Flanimals” books by Ricky Gervais (Hilarious – definitely worth buying, but the last one is very depressing at the end)
