Father's Day Books

Here's to all the dads out there who bandage skinned knees (usually after starting the wrestling match that caused them) and give shoulders to cry on. The men who coach sporting teams, chaperone school dances, and who brave the local mall. A toast to fathers who change diapers and give bottles and tenderly tuck kids into beds and those who work late and sometimes miss those moments. I hope each of you will sleep in, get a non-burned breakfast in bed and then takes the day to enjoy the families you've created. For moms looking for a last minute gift, here are some lovely books about dads -- perfect for a Father's Day bedtime.
