And my favourite food is Gruffalo Crumble!

Nice to see The Gruffalo as the mummys’ favourite children’s book, though honestly you haven’t experienced the book properly until it’s been read out by either a) a distinguished Trinity academic or b) a group of so-cool-yet-so-delighted teenagers. But, honestly – leaving aside the fact that no one seems to have asked fathers whether they read to their kids – why is it that mothers who answered the survey as ‘yes’ are described as mothers who ‘read to their children’ whereas mothers who answered ‘no’ are described as mothers who ‘claim they are too busy’ (my italics)? Honestly!
