Father's Day books?

Any suggestions for father's day books? We have a 2 year old toddler boy that is seriously testing our patience these days, along with a 4 month old daughter.

I'd like something that stresses the importance of a strong role model, patience, grace, and christian leadership in the home. Anything that stresses taking good care of your wife would be a bonus! If possible, something that deals with parenting with young children rather than older kids or teenagers since we're not there yet.

Thanks for the help!

Hi there! I did a book search with the keyword "father" at ChristianBook.com and one of the first titles that came up stood out for me: 1,001 Things It Means to be a Dad. Here are the rest of the search results. Hope this helps.


I have a 2 1/2 yr old plus a 5 mo old. Definitely a challenge some days! If you have the time, feel free to come hang out with us to relax!

I would strongly suggest Love and Logic. Here is the basic book for all ages.

Here is the one for young children.

I agree with Jen, Focus on the Family has great books, too.

I have heard really good things about Bringing up Boys and Bringing up Girls.
