Today the Department of Awesome Parenting salutes professional woodworker Hal Taylor, who designed and built this wonderful StoryTime Rocking Chair so that he could read to all three of his children at once.

“I have been an avid reader all of my life, therefore, when I had children I began reading to them very early, before they were born actually. This continued until their reading ability eclipsed my own. When Rose was born, she proved herself to be the “communicator” in the family very quickly, speaking in complete sentences with perfect diction. Well - she was NOT going to be left out of the reading crowd! This presented a problem for me because, not having a lap large enough for three children, this meant that Rachael, the oldest, had to stand by the chair at story time. I felt this was not at all fair and thought, “Well, I make rocking chairs, I can figure this thing out!” And, I did. The StoryTime Rocking Chair is the proof. Now, all three children could have a comfortable seat when reading.”

We think this handsome chair would work really well for folks who have more than one cat as well. We’re looking at you, our fellow crazy cat ladies and men. Just think of all the kitties you could share your lap with while sitting in this clever chair!

Taylor now makes custom StoryTime Rocking Chairs. Each chair is made by hand to perfectly fit its owner. Click here to more photos and ordering info.
