I have to say Jordan, my husband, is pretty good at storytelling. He gets very animated and his silly voices come out! There’s one funny Veggie Tales book we’ve been reading to our kids for years and each character has a different sounding voice. Jordan is really good at getting each character just right… Larry, Bob, Madame Blueberry, and Mr. Lunt.
Same goes with this new fun family story pictured above called, Because I’m Your Dad, an M&T sponsor. Jordan can get all the kids giggling with his animated voices, and this book gives more than a few opportunities to get goofy.
Even the burps came out, courtesy of page 15!
I think that is what I love best about dads. My dad is the same way. Of course he has the same 2 jokes he tells at every party. The Candle joke and the Moth Ball joke. And to me, they never get old.
Gotta love a good storyteller!
What about you? Any good storytellers in the family? The kind that can make you all laugh or bring back a few memeories from childhood?
Here are just a few fun links I’ve gathered that might help in the storytelling department, just in time for Father’s Day. Because we’ve got to encourage our dads to keeping telling stories!

I highly recommend gifting this to a father near you. He might even read it with a little goofy finesse. You can also download this free printable for Father’s Day Coupons. And be sure to follow the author on twitter and give him a shout out @AhmetZappa and follow Because I’m Your Dad on Facebook.
