#DadsRead Because Dads are Awesome
Howdy, folks! We’re approaching Father’s Day here which makes today’s post a bit premature. Then again, the concept of dads reading to their kids is for forever, not a single day. You see Zoobean is launching this campaign in conjunction with The Good Men Project from June 2 – June 15, just in time for Father’s Day. It’s called the #DadsRead campaign and is designed to get dads reading. Always a good thing.
I was asked if I wanted to do something in conjunction with this campaign. Of course, I don’t have to go very far to find an example of a man reading to a kid. I’ve got one of those. One man, two kids. So in honor of the campaign, here is the resident husband and one of the resident children and the many books they love to read.
And yes. This is just an excuse to show pics of my cute kid. To say nothing of my cute spouse.
