Hurray for the board book

I’ve just finished an annual volunteer job I love but also find difficult: judging children’s books for a national award.

This year, I was thrilled to see a few board books were nominated. Finally!

Although sales of board books (those heavy cardboard books for very young children) are strong, some people might assume, “Anyone can write a book with just a few words.”

Well, after being a “book judge” for more than twenty years, I can tell you that not everyone can communicate effectively using a limited number of words.

So hurrah for the board book! The place where every child begins on the road to reading.
