Kids say the darndest things!!

I just had to share this conversation with my son. He's 3.

Me: (I'm laying on the couch reading a book on my Sony Reader and he comes over trying to climb on me.) Careful E, I'm reading my book.

E: That's not a book.

Me: What is it then?

E: A silver thing.

Me: See, it's got words. It's a book.

E: A book doesn't have buttons. (He leaves and comes back with one of his books.) See, no buttons.

And then of course smarty pants Miss J (my 8 y/o comes over with a different book.) "This book has buttons." (It was one of those kids books with sound buttons to press at certain times during the story.)

As much as I adore my reader and the ease of digital media, I'm glad my kids have appreciation for paper books. I really would hate to see them disappear. Funny little reality check..... :)

Ps...The Very Hungry Caterpillar is his favorite book! :)

And make sure you stop back tomorrow!!!!!!!!! I have a FABULOUS guest blogger stopping by!!! She is my hero!!


  1. My granddaughters love anything by Eric Carle. I understand his love for the book to hold and caress. Happy reading.

  2. Reading is a whole different experience for kids...the pictures are the most important!! Thanks for stopping by!!

  3. That is so cute. Ebooks are changing the experience for adults and children.

  4. I love that they love paperbacks. I too really enjoy paperbacks and only occasionally find myself reading on my Kindle. It just isn't for everyone.

    Looking forward to today :)

  5. Kids say the darndest things, don't they? Too cute.
