It can also help them expand their vocabularies. They’re exposed to new words and concepts, and they learn how to use them in context. And let’s not forget the bond that’s created when you share a special story together.

Whether you’re reading a classic tale or one of their favorite bedtime books, you’re creating memories that will last a lifetime. So next time you’re looking for a way to connect with your kids, pick up a book and start reading aloud! Try adding in these cute books about Dad:
