Reading to your children from an early age will help them become interested in reading – and children who enjoy reading tend to do better in school and have more employment opportunities as adults! Children often become interested in reading by watching and mimicking their parents or participating in child-parent reading routines. Reading and telling stories to your children is not just good for them, it’s fun for dads too. It provides a positive way to stay involved in your children’s lives and creates memories to share with them as they get older. (Author abstract)

This tip sheet is designed as an informational handout for dads as a companion resource to the tip sheet for fatherhood program providers, The Benefits of Fathers Reading to Their Children: Tips for Fatherhood Programs and Dads.
