Joe Kelly of the Dadman.com is a great champion of girls and of fathers. He offers very practical, easy-to-use tips that dads put into play in daily life. One of my favorites of his tips are those about how dads can build a love of reading in children. It’s not hard. And it makes a HUGE difference.
Check out his reading tips for dads on his blog and then add yours here – what works for your family? I want to know.
The photo is Joe and our daughters reading together in 1983. We’re still a reading-centric family, sharing books and recommendations across the country. Books give us a rich experience of family togetherness even when we’re far apart.
