Bedtime stories

One of the parential duties I take quite serious is bed time story reading. Serious because it is so much fun. Unfortunately traveling all over Asia Pacific makes progress sometimes slow. We started with picture books, small stories that fit onto a few pages and on to whole books that took quite a while to digest. We digested a few classics like "fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm" and "The Thousand Nights and One Night" as well as some more special stuff. In no particular order this is what we read until today: We are now considering: Jules Verne, Pratchett/Gaiman: Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch or Diana Wynne Jones: Howl's Moving Castle.

What do you read to your kids?

    I found Good Omens to be an absolutely hilarious read. Seemed pretty mature to me, though.

    Terry Pratchett - "Wee Free Man" and the rest of the Tiffany Aching stories or "Maurice and his Educated Rodents".

    Wow...some great titles there.

    "Good Omens" was a fabulous book, but as Nathan said, it is a bit mature. Certainly worth reading for yourself at least.
