Come On, Dad!
Avis, Ed. 2008. Come On, Dad! 75 Things for fathers and sons to do together.
Come On, Dad! complements Come On, Mom! which I reviewed at the end of April. Together these books provide parents with ample ideas for activities on how to spend quality time with their children. While I can understand, in a way, the separation of the genders--moms & daughters, fathers & sons--it also annoys me slightly. The activities of both books could easily be mixed and matched between fathers, mothers, daughters, and sons. For the most part. I'd say that about 80-90% of the activities would be fun for either gender.
Come on, Dad! is a fun little book, a reference book, full of quality activities--suggestions--on how fathers and sons can spend some time together bonding. Some activities require the child to be a bit older--able to read and/or write. Other activities would be suitable or adaptable for younger children to participate in. Some require prep time--items to collect, etc--others just require YOU. I think there is something for everyone here.
