    Do you ever have to read them to a little one?
    It really drives me bored and puts me to sleep before my brother also drying my throat out!

    Not as of yet, but i'd probably like it wanting to be a primary school teacher and everything - i like young children, they're so much nicer then everybody else.

    I used to read them to my little brother. He's too old for them now
    It isn't boring, it's a sweet thing to do

    Well, I am half way through the first book, but that is mainly because I am usually up really late.

    Yep i do when i look after my sisters children. They like books like fireman sam, tweenies and peter rabbit books read to them. I agree with you i think it is so boring which is when i use my imagination constantly changing the story with the ending after two pages .

    Did anybody's parents used to tell them made-up stories when they were younger, where you (and maybe your siblings) were the main characters?

    Mine did, and I enjoyed them so much - if only I could be an infant once again...

    Oh yes, my mother was quite the story teller, and we had creations such as the glurp.

    Nope, i was content with regular stories, we had dozens of books, with my favourites being (of course) Mr Men.

    I used to read them when I babysat for the two girls next door. They were never really interested, but begged me to do it anyway- I think it had more to do with the fact that I was a grown-up figure rather than a love of stories! I skipped out pages and paragraphs when it started to get boring

    Haha, my dad used to have some rather creative ones - a favourite character of his was the 'Socky Monster' (literally the sock off his foot, which he put on his hand to scare me, lol).

    My mom came up with altogether more cautionary tales, which were sometimes a bit scary, but always had a moral lesson! Like for instance the one about what happened to children who played on the windowsill. True to form, I never played on the windowsill again.
