Hi there First Time Dads!

If you’re going to be a first time dad, you’ve likely seen your wife reading books about what to expect while you’re expecting, how to be a new mom, and how to parent your child in their formative years.  While it’s perfectly acceptable for dads to read those books too, we think dads should read books that specifically prepare them for their role as a father and that they can relate to as a man. So, to help build your reading list and get you prepared for the new baby that’s on the way (or has just arrived) here are a few books we recommend.

*Keep in mind the advice and information in all of these books is advice from that specific author, not TEKDADDI.
