T3 :: It’s a Book

I am taking a page (Eh? Eh? You like what I just did there?) from Selah and using a children’s book as my inspiration for T3 this month. I haven’t been reading lately because of my own novel writing, but I couldn’t just let T3 elapse without contributing, so a children’s book – in all its short, 32-page glory – came to my rescue.

I was introduced to this gem by the lovely BFF who likes to throw books at me indiscriminately in the hopes that some will stick. We have such vastly differing tastes in leisure reading, you see, and it’s a rare thing for us to both love something at the same time.

This was one of those rare occurrences.

It’s a Book by Lane Smith is a hilarious and painful reminder of what we as teachers and parents face and this book really resonated with us on both levels. Now, I’m not going to spoil the end for you, but you probably want to read the Amazon reviews (click on the 1-star ratings) if you have littler ones and/or have a problem with questionable language. As the Anti-Censorship Champion, I couldn’t care less and advocate this book with the passion of a thousand screaming lobbyists.

I love the muted tones of the pictures, but it was those nice, red, comfy chairs Monkey and Donkey are sitting on that reminded me of an orphan red dress I’ve not worn since I bought it. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy. Gods, I love this 50 Dresses thing!




Now it’s your turn, my friends. Since it’s a freebie month, you can pretty much link any outfit and slap a book or blog article or manga or tweet on it and call it done. C’mon! We just wanna see what inspired you this month. You know you wanna…

    Red really is your color. AND I’m so glad that one of the books I threw finally stuck!

      So why don’t I own more red things? Not that I can do anything about it for 85 more days, right? I’m actually pleased that I can still wear red even with my new hair color. Good times!

    So pretty in red! Every woman just looks great in a red dress. Some of us just can’t take all the attention we get … you, however, look completely comfortable in front of the camera in this special dress. Much glam!
    So sorry you’re sick … I hate it when that happens. Sending you best hopes and focused will that you get better fast!
    And … the hours pass ’till Dr. Who begins again. My Saturday nights after work are about to get much better!
    Am struggling with website for the restaurant … redesigning the site and changing host company. I persevere, but getting nothing else done.

  3. Oh lady, I though cobalt blue was your color, but you in this bold red – wow!

    That video is great! I love the voices. And your red dress is so pretty. It also accentuates the positive, if you know what I mean!

    I hope you’re feeling better.

      I am now functioning at 85% which is pretty good, considering I lost my voice by day’s end yesterday.

      And yes, this dress makes me look bountiful doesn’t it? It could also be the bra, which I talk about in tomorrow’s post.

  5. Ooh, pretty dress! The color palette is perfect for the book. There is a companion book called “It’s a Little Book” for people with younger children. 😀

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
