Illiterate children's book


This is Page 3 of one of Miriam's books. Notice anything untoward?

Needless to say, this book is going to be promptly removed from our regular rotation. And possibly given to DI, where it can corrupt some other kid's grammar skills.

In my defense, this book was given to me as a hand-me-down from my mom (I'm not sure where she got it, but I'm guessing she didn't buy it, either). My not being a fan of Barney (and all his associated tripe) aside, it's never OK to have typos in a published children's book. Ever.

Thank you for noting that I never would have bought a Barney book. Or read one either--didn't even recognize the book let alone the lack of editing! Granny

Dear, Bridget,

Why, oh, why, would you ever get rid of such an educational book. I mean, it talks about, squares, and things.

Alright...so you're probably better off without it.
