Dad, you can help to build a strong brain for your baby and toddler. When you interact directly with your child to talk and play, you actually build billions of neuron connections in your baby’s brain. You really are “Superman” for your baby because you are the trusted hero that helps your baby grow a stronger brain!

Father’s Day is an occasion celebrated worldwide to honor the contributions, sacrifices, and influence of fathers in families and society. It’s a day to express gratitude and appreciation for the love, guidance, and support that fathers provide to their children and families. Father figures play a crucial role in shaping the lives of their children, imparting wisdom, values, and life lessons that endure through generations.

Reading is a key way to grow a child’s brain, and a wonderful way for fathers to bond with their children.

Take a look at a few suggestions below we recommend this Father’s Day and everyday.

All are available on Amazon and potentially at your local library. In fact, ask your local librarian what children’s books they have available to celebrate Black History Month!
