In my #7 most popular post of the year, I take on a popular children's series of books (The Berenstain Bears) and confront its portrayal of Papa Bear as a dummy. Yes, we still read the series in our house, because it does teach a lot of good values, but I am seriously critical of the idea that the man of the house has to be the comic relief. A lot of you agreed with me and I still regularly get hits on my blog from people seeking someone with the same viewpoint. I'd love to hear your recommendations of children's books that portray a strong, healthy father figure.
