F4F REVIEWS- DISNEY'S SOFIA THE FIRST- A FATHER'S PERSPECTIVE

When I was approached by Disney to review a new book in November of 2013, I was a little skeptical (and a little late in writing my review). To tell you the truth, I was a little Disney-ed out at that point. My daughter was at that age where everything she ate, slept and talked about was Disney Princesses. There's Cinderella (her favorite), and Snow White, and Sleeping Beauty, and Pocahontas and Jasmine and Belle and Ariel (The Little Mermaid). There are DVDs and dolls, sippy cups and slippers, figurines and tea sets and jewellry boxes, amulets and armchairs- it's almost too much. Truth is, I barely escape the Disney store with my ears not ringing from all the squealing my little girl does whenever she sees something she likes (which is everything). So why would I want to support yet another "princess" book (with a TV show, and more books and movies and merchandise in the works)? Well,I didn't. But, sometimes even dads can't fight the magic of Disney.

FODDER UP! PART VIIII- TEACHING DAD TO READ

As a new dad, people are always suggesting great books I should read, which always elicits the same question: "Is it a picture book?" No offence, but I barely have enough time to shave in the morning, let alone read a volume of some long winded parental advisory on the dangers of anything and/or everything related to my child. And forget pleasure reading for myself. Other than the odd comic book in the bathroom (yes, I said comic book), everything I have the opportunity to read during the day comes in digital form. That's the life of a dad. I need everything short, sweet, and to the point. My daughter, well that's a whole other story.
