Celebrate the Book!

Read one with traditional pages...

You guessed it. I’m not a fan of Kindle or any other modern contraption out to rid the world of worn spines and crinkly pages. I don’t visualize parents, teachers, and librarians getting all snuggly about this form of technology either.

The wonderful folks at Macmillan have a new picture book that pokes a little fun at this subject matter. It’s a total hoot for those of us who want to preserve the traditional way of reading with our children.

Check it out:

It's a Book by Lane Smith

Roaring Brook Press, 8/03/2010

And It's a Book! Trailer:

Watch on as a tech-savvy donkey and a book-loving ape exchange words...

(I'm looking forward to this one.)
