From the Cover:
CAN IT TEXT?
NO....... IT'S A BOOK.
A jackass, a mouse, and a monkey.... all characters in Lane Smith's new book, It's A Book. It's cute little story to remind kids that not everything revolves around our fast paced world where four year olds carry cell phones, eight year olds carry laptops, twelve year olds blog on Facebook. We've forgotten some important facts about how we live, the stress we bring not only to our lives, but our children's lives, without meaning to and with good intentions. It reminds us to relax, pick up a book, and get lost in the pages. I highly recommend to old and young alike, pick up It's A Book. Read it with your child, your niece/nephew, a cousin, a friend and then share it. It's a wonderful addition to any child's library.
