In the market for a Father's Day gift? Here are two books about becoming a dad and one about answering your kid's questions.
The Brotherhood of Joseph: A Father's Memoir of Infertility and Adoption in the 21st Century (Modern Times), by Brooks Hansen, details one couple's experience of the amazing world of fertility treatment — and the emotional turmoil it can create.
The Dudes' Guide to Pregnancy: Dealing With Your Expecting Wife, Coming Baby and the End of Life as You Knew It (Wellness Central), by Bill Lloyd and Scott Finch, is a cheerfully rude but reassuring guide for the kind of father-to-be whose kid may grow up before he does.
Father Knows Less: One Dad's Quest to Answer His Son's Most Baffling Questions (Perigee), by Wendell Jamieson, offers expert answers to little kids' posers — everything from classics like "Why is the sky blue?" to toughies like "What does sexy mean?"
