New Book: A Dad’s Guide to Babycare

Colin Cooper’s new book, A Dad’s Guide to Baby Care (Hamlyn 2015) is just out.

My son is reading – oh, no!

My 7 year old son is reading aloud! I should be so proud. Yet, he is reading the prose of Super Baby Diaper 2, another semi-literate installment in the Captain Underpants series.

Review: The Civil War by Innovative Kids
