Teaser Tuesday August 31: It's a Book by Lane Smith

Barbara's picture

I bought a book for my grandkids last week. Having read it at ALA 2010 in June, I knew it was a lovely and funny book starring a mouse, a jackass, and a monkey. Everyone who is a booklover will enjoy it. Here are beginning lines I with use for my TT. 

"What do you have there?

It's a book.

How do you scroll down?

I don't. I turn the page. It's a book.

Do you blog with it?

No, it's a book." 
-- It's a Book by Lane Smith

The discussion goes on from there. And, the illustrations are so cute.

Here is the great trailer for It's a Book. Love it!



Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Miz B from Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following: Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I wonder if there ARE children who know how to read a webpage before they've turned their first book page?
