Here’s a bit of wonderful for your Wednesday – a Virginia father has crafted a three-person rocking chair to make sure that none of his kids are excluded when it comes to story time.

Hal Taylor loved to read to his two kids in their rocking chair, but when Baby #3 arrived he couldn’t fit all three onto his lap. Well, what else would a rocking chair carpenter like himself do but build a new one, complete with two child-sized seats to either side of him. Problem solved!

As one article said: “Of course, he could just read to his children on the sofa – but where’s the fun in that?”

And if you’re interested, Hal sells more chairs just like it on his website.
