My husband is the best husband. He is also the best father. Going into June, I knew I wanted to highlight the importance and privilege of having a father. Not every child gets a kiss and hug good bye when their dad leaves for work. Not every child has a father who will sneak them an extra spoonful of ice cream after mom has already said no. Not every child has a father who takes pride in them.
I know Addison is little and my reasoning will not resonate with her, but regardless, I wanted my June Six to feature dads. The story that makes me smile the most is “My Dad Used to Be So Cool”. The illustrations are bright and the story makes me heart smile knowing that good parents will give up parts of their past to make a life that is focused on loving their children.
I hope you enjoy the books I picked out this month. And happy Father’s Day to all the great guys that invest in their children!
