Yesterday was International Day of the Book, so it felt fitting to highlight It’s a Book by Lane Smith. A conversation between a reader and a ‘screener’ illustrates how books pull us into new worlds without electricity, buttons or plugs. The witty banter appeals to children of all ages and provides a platform to discuss the benefits of getting lost in a book when the digital age surrounds all we do. And its unexpected ending is good for a giggle too! (Parent alert: the word ‘jackass’ is used at the end in case you want to think about alternatives when reading aloud).
