Since becoming a father, the power of literature has become hugely apparent. It’s fair to say that my son, Lenny, is obsessed with books. I have realised that the tactile nature of a book, turning the pages, the detailed illustrations, even the type of paper used will simply never be beaten. The time I spend reading with Lenny is invaluable as he (and I!) become lost in an imaginary world. Magic.
Some of our favourite books:
Harry and the Jaggedy Daggers by Jan Fearnley
The Tiger Who Came to Tea by Judith Kerr
Sally and the Limpet by Simon James
