It’s A Little Book

We just read Lane Smith’s picture book It’s A Book and the board book It’s A Little Book. The premise of these books is that the donkey (or jackass, depending which version you read) does not understand what a book is for, what it does, or how it works; the donkey tries a number of things until the monkey explains that it’s a book – for reading!

Sudo with It's A Little Book by Lane Smith on her head

“Is it for wearing?”

Sudo obliged us with a demo. (We figured “Is it for wearing?” was a less destructive option than “Is it for eating?” and would enable us to return the book to the library without the embarrassment of teethmarks.)
