Mission Statement

  • This site has no agenda, and its author has no chip on his shoulder. He promises not to whine about "fatherhood equality," and he'll do his best not to sound superior. He is, afterall, just a dad. Instead, he promises to tell good stories about his three kids. That's about it.

Thanks to Metro dad's brainwashing, I've been reading some of your posts. Congratulations on a great blog.
I'm happy if my kids read or want to be read to. Full stop. Anything will do as long as they get the bug. As far as my oldest son is concerned, it's Harry Potter that has got him off and running on his own. I, however have a slight prejudice against the fantasy genre, worrying that he might get stuck in his bedroom as a teenager, caught in a world of books and computer games and dubious hygenic standards. So I tried an English adventure classic: Enid Blyton's Famous Five. That was like turning back the clock of social equality 50 years. Too depressing for me. Of the alternatives to Potter, Roald Dahl has been great (The BFG!) and the books by Eva Ibbertson. I just don't want him to become a hobbit.
