Northshire Bookstore's Father's Day Picks

Jennifer Armstrong, bookseller extraordinaire from Northshire Bookstore on Broadway in Saratoga (our area's top independent bookstore) is on Mamatoga today with some last minute book ideas perfect for the dad in your life. indexFor the first time dad: Jimmy Fallon's new book, "Your Baby's First Word Will Be Dada," is just as charming as he is.  The text is refreshingly simple (no ham-handed attempt to instill a lesson, thank goodness) and the art is cheerful and fun.  This is a perfect first Father's Day book.

Not his first Father's Day?  How about How to Surprise a Dad, by the best-selling team (Jean Reagan and Lee Wildish) that brought you How to Baby-Sit a Grandma and How to Baby-Sit a Grandpa.  Full of funny advice for mischievous kids.  Dads: just pretend you don't see them sneaking up behind from behind.  Play along.

Dads of school-aged kids may appreciate Made by Dad: 67 Blueprints for Making Cool Stuff, a book of projects to do with the kids that will get them all away from their screens and into full-on tinker mode.  It's fun, funny, and even somewhat ingenious.

Pop into Northshire to pick up these great picks just in time for Father's Day!
