It's a Book- 32 pages

It's a Book by Lane Smith is a children's story at first glance. It's about a clueless creature who can't seem to figure out that a book can't text, scroll, or need charging. A monkey tries to show him how to use it, with little success, until he finally sits down and reads it for several hours. Even then, he doesn't quite understand.

This is probably my favorite younger book, though the ending isn't one most parents would want their 6-year old to read. When the monkey loses his patience is my favorite part, though I'm not giving anything away. You'll have to read it yourself to find out.


  1. I loved this book too, and the final page is just the best! I am glad you loved it as well. Isn't the monkey just the cutest thing? This is a book that is going on my keeper shelf. Wonderful review!

  2. I had the chance to read this book at SIBA and I thought it was adorable! I know what you're talking about at the end, but parents who are reading the book can just substitute another word and the kids won't know the difference.
