We’ve found another book that you probably need to get for the single-digit kids in your life, or the tweens who might be responsible for reading to their baby siblings. (And, when I say “we”, I mean “Maribou”.)
The Incredible Book Eating Boy is a story about a boy who loves books.
It’s a cute story, it’s got a somewhat cute twist in the middle, and ends with a cute surprise that will make the young’uns laugh pretty hard and give the someone older ones an opportunity to engage in some light absurdist slapstick humor to make the young’uns laugh even harder. And then they’ll want to read it again.
It’s not quite as sneakily didactic as some of the other books we’ve recommended here (Zen Shorts and The Dot being the first to come to mind) but if you’re looking for a book to act as a gateway to the sneakily didactic, this might provide the wedge you’re looking for.
So… what are you reading and/or watching?
