When I got pregnant for the first time, we were immediately given a copy of What to Expect When You Are Expecting. I practically wore the book out as I went through my pregnancy. Although my husband was an interested and involved dad, it just didn’t seemed to resonate with him as much. I have wondered ever since what sort of book first time dads need to help navigate them through the “dad side” of the pregnancy equation.
I think I have finally found the perfect book! Best of all, the author is Christian and although he doesn’t talk about God and his faith on every page, he makes it clear a strong faith in God is essential. The New Dad’s Playbook is written by NFL tight end Benjamin Watson. That fact alone would have made my husband interested in reading the book. It covers everything from the moment you first find out you are pregnant until after the baby comes home from the hospital.
