Fathers Book List


The Man Who Would Be Dad
by Hogan Hilling

ISBN: 1892123959

This is an excellent book for fathers and fathers-to-be. I enjoyed reading Mr. Hilling's accounts of his feelings and emotions of becoming a father, the learning experience of bonding with his children and finally coming to an understanding of what it means to become not just a father but a good father. The book also focuses on the difficulties of raising a handicap child and how his child helped him become a better person.

I have already recommended this book to friends. The book also gives an insight of the life of a stay-at-home dad and it explains that being a stay-at-home dad is not an easy job for every dad but it takes a special dad to be one.

The New Father Book: What Every Man Needs to Know to Be a Good Dad
by Wade F. Horn, Alice Feinstein (Editor), Jeffrey Rosenberg, Better Homes and Gardens Books

Inspires Confidence! A book for every new dad! If you know anyone who has just found out their wife is pregnant....this is the book they absolutely will need. So many mom's have showers and receive gifts for the baby. Why not include this book for the dad! Not only does this book enlighten fathers, mothers will want to steal this book to refer to all the great sections on baby/toddler development. The charts on page 52 and 66 organize the developmental advances a baby goes through.

Through the seven chapters, men will learn what it takes to be a dad, how to be a good prenatal dad, what to expect at the birth, what changes to expect in the first two weeks and then what to look for in the first year and toddler/preschool years. The "Many Faces of Fatherhood" is a modern look at fatherhood. Adoption, divorce, unwed fathers, stepfathers and widowed fathers are also given some great advice.

"The most important thing you can do to ensure your child develops good emotional health is to show your love for him or her. Do this, and your child will feel valued, loved, and respected." --page 68

This book gives real world tips from fathers on how to be a positive influence in the life of their child. It guides men through pregnancy and childbirth and has practical advice on how men can help care for an infant. Truly, this is moral support to encourage men to become the best fathers they can be.

Keeping the Baby Alive till Your Wife Gets Home
by Walter Roark

ISBN: 0970793707

I bought this book on a lark as it was sitting at the checkout counter of my local bookstore. Nevertheless, I was pleased to find how funny and entertaining it is, and I did learn a few things about parenting.

This guy Roark is pretty observant, and he let's us Fathers into many of the secrets of being a good dad. I think "Keeping the Baby Alive..." deserves a wider audience as it strikes a excellent balance between humor and tangible, useful information.
Keep up the good work, Mr. Roark, and how about something on toddlers!!!
