Canadian Dad Podcast - Chris Routly

Canadian Dad Podcast – Ep. 6 – Children’s Author & Writer, Chris Routly

This week on the show, I spoke to stay at home dad, blogger at and the author of the new children’s book,Sometimes You Need a Jellyfish“, Chris Routly!

We discussed his journey from a career in graphic design to life as a stay at home dad, blogger and author. Chris also talks about his work with the National At-Home Dad Network and the new Portland Dads Group that he is co-running. 

Chris is a great dad and great writer, PLUS he knows the exact date that Marty McFly goes into the future and we talk a bit about how the internet is always getting the date wrong!

Finally, I am happy to introduce the first ever sponsor for the podcast! If you would like to take advantage of a one month free trial at Reading Eggs, you can go to and sign up! I have been using this service for about a year and my kids love it.

Kids Reviewing Stuff: The Last Snowman by JC Little

Is an overdue book review still a book review? I think it is, so let’s get to it! My kids wanted to make a video and I needed to review a great new book from my friend and The Animated Woman writer, JC Little, so we combined them and the end result is below! In short, we loved The Last Snowman and highly recommend it!
