If you know a father-to-be, then you know someone who needs a little guidance. Here is a list of the best books for new dads that are written for men.

There are many resources for new dads from books to videos to classes. However, new dads and dads-to-be often get neglected.

Fathers-to-be often have lots of questions that they do not feel comfortable asking, and these books are for them. Whether you buy one for yourself or give one as a gift for a dad-to-be that you know, each of these books is written for men, and makes the entire pregnancy process easier and more fun for new dads.

Many of these books are written from a humorous point of view, which makes them fun to read and share with the mom-to-be.
