I Hate Picture Books by Timothy Young
In our house the word HATE, DUMB and STUPID are BAD words...so much so that a certain 6 1/2 year old came crying into the room one night because he accidentally read the word "stupid" while reading to dad ...he was apparently afraid we would kick him out of the house. We did not. We did have a rather lengthy discussion about why we do not use those words but why authors sometimes have to use them. He bought it - for now. That being said....I loved this book! Max, the main character, hates picture books. Yes, I had a hard time even checking this out of the library. He points out just how ridiculous some of these picture books are. He quickly realizes though it is not that he HATES them (thank goodness) but rather loves them.
