Hooray for Dads Who Read!

On the day we celebrate fathers, let’s send up an extra cheer for dads who read. In his Read-Aloud Handbook,Jim Trelease cites studies showing that fathers who read aloud to their kids and fathers who read recreationally raise better readers, particularly among boys.

I’m heartened to see more and more resources for reading dads (like the excellent Book Dads and Read Aloud Dad blogs) and increasing focus on dads who read (like the Fathers Read blog and the recently published book, The Reading Promise). Take a look at these resources, and set aside some time to read this Father’s Day.
