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!!
