How I Read Baby Books in Ridiculous Voices

Bored of reading board books to your kiddo? Try using ridiculous voices. All the cool kids are doing it.

Featuring Little Brown Mouse, as narrated by: Cher from Clueless


What's with the lack of female characters in the Gruffalo? All male pronouns, all the time. I've added a dose of girl power by casting Little Brown Mouse as a decidedly sassy teenage girl. (Full disclosure: characters from Mean Girls are also excellent for this)

Do you have any goofy ways of coping with baby books?? I'd love to hear all about it!!
