For the Sports Loving Dad

This is one of my husbands favorite Father’s Day books. Dads do what the best coaches do—they motivate, mentor, discipline, and love. Author and parenting expert Tom Limbert takes wisdom from John Madden, Vince Lombardi, Tommy Lasorda, Phil Jackson, and many more, and applies it to fatherhood.

The story of the game comes to life through beautiful photos, original lists, charts, creative statistics, and infographics, along with artifacts essential to the story of the sport. A perfect gift, NFL 100 will be cherished by every football fan, new or old.

Profiles of such legendary figures as Joe DiMaggio, Pete Rose, and Yogi Berra. Essays that explore the complexities and pleasures of the game, even an excerpt from the movie Bull Durham. This is the perfect book for anyone who has ever played so much as a game of catch. 

For New Dads

A new dad’s guide, from birth day to birthday. The pregnancy’s over and the baby’s here…what’s a dad supposed to do? Put your other new dad books away?We’re Parents! is going to help you be the best dad (and partner) you can be.

This book gives dads a blueprint to enabling your kids to lead their most fulfilling life. With a challenge to fathers everywhere to stand up and make their family their number one priority and raise their children with purpose.

For Car Loving Dads

My dad loved this father’s day book as a gift last year. Including more than 1,300 pages and 12,500 illustrations covering 70 years. This book offers a complete visual history of the American automobile. 

Explore some of the world’s fastest cars from 1996 to 2019. Including 35 cars with beautiful full-color photos and overviews of each car.

The Photography Dad

National Geographic has some of the best published photos in the world. Throughout the book you’ll find pro tips, quick assignments, and the behind-the-camera stories of great photographs.

This guide to Landscape Photography builds a solid foundation of photographic knowledge. Including easy-to-follow discussions of everything that you need to know in order to create better images with confidence.

The Fishing Dad

The Total Fishing Manual is chock full of 317 field-tested tools, techniques and tactics, collected and written by the Field & Stream editors and accompanied by amazing photos and handy illustrations. 

The Funny Dad

The Ultimate Dad Joke Book is jam packed with family friendly, clean and hysterical jokes. Great for everyone from your toddler to your great-grandma! Buckle up and get ready for some knee slapping, head shaking and gut busting laughter every time you flip a page.

Dad jokes. They make you cringe, they make you groan but the one thing they have in common is they come from dad.

Get the dad in your life a fun Father’s Day book. He’ll thank you for it.

First, I am definitely not a summer person! (It's the weather that I can't stand.) But I love those mild summer nights, and I definitely enjoy spending a night or two at a local campground.
