Children's Tuesday: It's A Book!

Lane Smith, the creator of Madame President and Grandpa Green (a 2012 Caldecott Honor book), brings us It's A Book, a simple, clever, and very poignant look at the concept of a story in a cover.
Ebooks or print? Along with VHS and cassette tapes, will our children someday wonder what a BOOK is?

And for the really young...

(Lane Smith is also the illustrator for The Stinky Cheese Man, The True Story of the Three Little Pigs and many other picture books.)


  1. I loved this book! It made me laugh but it also made me realize how much technology can take over our lives. Also, The Stinky Cheese Man was genius.

  2. YES. The Stinky Cheese Man is pure genius. I still kick myself for not buying the 10th anniversary edition when i had the chance years ago. It had a special dust jacket with a story printed underneath. It was "The Boy Who Cried Cow Patty".


So, what do you think, oh Lovely Reader?
