The Fat Controller – Reading with Kids and eReaders

I want to share something I don’t do often, a personal experience. Many of you may think I am a Mum who comes home after dropping my kids at school at plays with my website, tucking my kids into bed with a bedtime storey every night. If so you possibly did not get to the ‘profile’ part of the […]

Adopt a Seal?

One method I’ve found great success with getting my ‘reluctant reader’ interested in reading and writing is choosing topics she likes. Sounds obvious right, but it’s really important! The last two books created with my daughter, Zehnya, were about Seals. (All About Seals, and  Zenya’s Trip). It was great fun to look up facts and to […]
