2010 Award
It's a Book
( by Lane Smith, Roaring Brook Press $12.99 Score: )

We shared this with a college intern who thought this was an angry book. To those of us who are devoted to books and think of them as indispensable--this is a pretty funny, if bittersweet message we'd like to share. It is definitely a generational divide kind of book. Our intern was not sure that little kids would even get it. He may be right. Do they know what it means to blog, text, wi-fi, tweet? For the under 6 crowd, let's hope not. For too many of our college intern's age group, the book is already 'old media' that has arrived or will rapidly land on the trash heap with buggy whips, hoop skirts, and music written before last week. If you love books, forget the kids---buy it for yourself.
