What are you reading (to your children)?


I've got a seven-year-old daughter to whom I've been reading the TinTin - The Broken Ear. She really loves the TinTin series and we've completed around 17 of them together. Her interest in it was triggered by the animated movie Adventures of Tin Tin(2011), which we watched a year agoSince then, it has been only TinTin for her. I'm also reading the play Father Comes Home from the Wars by Suzan Parks. It is a play I wanted to introduce to him before Chekhov's. My twelve-year-old son has been extremely attentive, inquisitive, and empathetic in understanding the chains of slavery and the position of the Black Confederates. It also serves as a parallel and indirect source of learning history, apart from developing race-sensitive behavior.

As a father of a toddler, I’ve discovered that there are some amazing architecture books available for kids! With that being said my favorite architectural book for children at the moment is Iggy Peck, Architect and a personalized book On A Journey Among Dinosaurs - a one-two bedtime reading combination.

I don't have kids but do have a former client who is a children's book author. This one paid for her whole-house renovation I designed:

And a close friend from high school's dad was one of the first superstar children's books authors and illustrators:

Lately its non-stop Richard Scarry. One thing that I love/find morbidly hilarious now, though I don't remember noticing myself as a kid, is that so many scenes are pigs working at a deli counter/as butcher/eating their own kind...

Richard Scarry is awesome! Am reading my boys the exact same books I read as a kid, sometimes it pays off to have a hoarder for a mother :)

Blueberries for Sal. Moral of the story: Your parents will abandon you in an empty field.

Children have to be taught that with a book. Pfft. My parents just abandoned me, no book needed.

Just kidding.  They read me the book then abandoned me.
