what our kids are reading now

  • The adventures of Samuarai Jack has been great fun to read. The series is about, an evil shape-shifter named Aku from the distant past that has brought destruction upon the land. Jack is a heroic warrior in a quest to return to the past and undo the evil wrought by Aku. ~ d

  • Dillon has been loving “The Monster Show” for weeks. It is a cute “tell all” about monsters... did you know that monsters feel silly only wearing underpants? Little D (3) now reads it back to me and it is the cutest thing ever. ~d

  • This is a great little series of books about trucks, fire engines, digger and other machines. Dillon reads these over and over again. The have cute illustrations, bright colors and they are about machines — what little boy wouldn't like! ~d

Bummer, I was looking forward to taking my 4 year old son... I guess I'll just have to bring my older boys (13 & 10). Thanks for the heads-up.


I'm wondering if years of scary Disney movies will have served as proper training for this Pixar delight. Screw the kids. I still want to go.


Movies like Up will scare some children more than others. It's not always something you can predict; why do modern parents seem so angry when they're unable to control every single emotional moment their child has?


Here's how to control those moments: Don't take your kids to violent movies! Go play in a park! Go read a book!

Why do we need to raise a generation on mass media, lightning fast images, and slapstick violence? Throttle back on the rush to adolescence.
