“NO WAY! That’s BORING!!!”
That is the response I got when I showed Mahlie the new book I got her, “The Book With No Pictures” by B.J. Novak.
She loves, loves, LOVES books. We read together EVERY and I will find her asleep next to a pile of books in her bed in the morning.
She also sees ME reading every day. Not on my iPhone, not on the computer, not on a kindle or nook, but real books, the ones you hold in your hands and turn the pages.
One evening she asked me, “Doesn’t reading books with no pictures make your brain tired?”
While reading at night does often result with me falling asleep with a book open on my lap, that is more the result of kids running me ragged all day.
So when I got out this book with no pictures, she was skeptical.
But then I started to read it, and the response from her was gut-busting laughter.
Not believing your kid will like a book with no pictures? Watch below:
B.J. Novak is brilliant. And this book is FANTASTIC. I urge anyone with younger kids to run out and get this book or order it by clicking on the picture below.
Enjoy every last one of the 1,000,000 times your kid will make you read this.
Have a great crazy weekend!
