Tadpole is taking part in a sponsored read-a-thon in aid of Sendacow.org.uk. He will be reading throughout the month of October.
I reckon he’ll probably read at a rate of around 2-4 books a week (with each book being of around 12-16 pages), so over the course of the month, we expect he’ll work his way through anything between 8 and 16 books, possibly a few more, which is no small thing for a six year old boy!
If anyone would like to sponsor my lad in his charitable endeavor, please do get in touch by emailing me at
We can easily arrange something via Paypal.*
In the meantime, please enjoy this little video of Tadpole reading a story to me…
