Come On, Dad! 75 Things for Fathers and Sons to do Together by Ed Avis suggests ideas for fun and easy activities. It emphasizes activities that foster creativity, self-expression, togetherness, love of nature, and the joy of moving and exploring. Activities that involve making things require inexpensive items or things commonly found in the home. While it is intended for boys, the majority of activities are not stereotypical or gender-specific. Come on, Dad! will give parents lots of ideas for fun and inexpensive games and crafts, and will also be useful for daycare workers and teachers, who will be ready the next time they hear, “I’m booooored!” mRb
