759: And Then

So I’ve come to have a number of opinions on board books. 

  1. Just because we have the technology to turn any picture into a board book, we shouldn’t. A board book should have a certain brevity of words.
  2. Board books are to toddlers what music is to adults. You find ones that are catchy and want to hear them over and over again, then that newness fades and the best still remain good, but in general your’e ready to move on to new, exciting ones.
  3. Toddlers all like to be read to. This is not worth bragging about. Save the pride points for when your tiny human can whistle, sing the ABCs or actually read. Now that’s impressive.
