I Am Not Weird – A Read To Me, Dad Review

My friend Kevin Metzger, whom I just met yesterday in real life for the first time but whom I have talked to numerous times online in the past year or so, sent me two copies of his daughter Haley’s book, “I Am Not Weird”. I decided that I would review the book here on BenSpark.com rather than on Read To Me, Dad because eventually I am going to pull that blog and the content there over here and do more view reviews with Eva and books for Children here. I’m going to stop spreading myself and my content across the web and off you content here in one place. So if you want to just read the Read To Me Dad stuff then that is cool you can still go to http://readtomedad.com but it will point here to the Read To Me Dad category. Here is the view review of the book.

Haley’s book is a wonderful one written by a strong intelligent courageous child. As a father I am blown away by this book and how much self confidence and self awareness Haley must have at such a young age. I also enjoyed that She signed Eva’s copy. Here is the link to purchase the book – http://myspellingsucks.com/weird/

Oh yes, the second copy. I am giving that away to a lucky reader.

The video was shot on the versatile Kodak PlaySport camera that I received for free to film the Roger Williams Paddle back in July. I’ve quickly made it my favorite video camera and in a pinch still camera.

Continuing a family weekend we were up early on Sunday and Eva and I played many games, she comes up with so many fun ones. We also played flash cards with her newest obsession National Geographic Little Kids magazine. Before we started Financial Peace University I ordered NatGeoKids. There is a great interactive website for the magazine as well. This magazine is not to be confused with National Geographic Kids which is more of a real magazine with longer involved stories.
