It’s a Book, by Lane Smith

November 22nd, 2010 · No Comments

This is a wonderful new children’s book by Lane Smith (but really, it seems like it’s directed more at parents). We picked up a copy over the weekend. From a design point of view, I think the above video – while a great tool for helping get the word out -  impacts the first impression of the book by introducing an animation style that was probably not envisioned by the illustrator from the outset.

That said, you should get the book. It’s a reminder to put down the electronics and engage in reading with your kids.
