Mr Chapman has previously said that, “The core components of the series is to provide opportunities towards early literacy through a written medium that focuses on developing environmental appreciation and understanding in young people, while at the same time promoting the important social value of parents spending quality time with their children.” His latest book, “Daddy and I Explore the Farm,” has been distributed to schools across the island, with sponsorship provided by HSBC.

    Hmmmm...I'm wondering how this man got his advanced degree, and who let this book series get published.

    In one book (Daddy and I Explore the Coast, or something), it shows him plucking live corals (!!!!!!!) from a tidepool -- and we don't even have any corals in Bermuda which live in tidepools.

    Daddy and I need to explore reality and explore the eonvironmental protection laws.
