Wreck This Picture Book

We rated this book:


According to this book, books really don’t have any reason for being unless they are interacting with someone. Books aren’t meant to simply sit on the shelf and be tidy, even though some adults have made up a whole lot of rules about books and how they must be treated. The book speaks directly to the reader and has many suggestions about good ways to interact with it. Of course, there is reading. That is the first way, but there are lots and lots of other ways. The book can be flung through the air or touched with different body parts or have the pages flipped to make sounds, or the reader can smell the book or add smells to the book or fold the pages or roll them up or even dress it up. The ideas of what should be done to a book are all over the place and many are somewhat destructive, which is perhaps fine if it is one’s own personal book, but librarians and a lot of parents certainly won’t be fond of these ideas. The art is creative and a lot of fun to look at though, which should keep littles ones entertained.
