An interesting experiment

This is an illustrated children's book, probably aimed at ages 3-4. The story and the art are straightforward and unpretentious. I read it alone, but really it should be my four-year old who reviews it, which brings up the interesting issue of how this book is meant to be used. It's apparently electronic-only, and there's no downloadable or printer-friendly version, so I guess I'd have to sit in front of the computer with my daughter in my lap and read it aloud to her. That would be sort of awkward. The pages were also pretty slow to download over a modem, which means my audience would have to wait before I read each page. I think it would have worked better if the text had been duplicated outside of the images so that I could have started reading it immediately while the low-resolution image was turning into a high-resolution image. I was impatient with the delay, and ended up reading the text from the image while it was still blurry and low-resolution, so it was sort of an exercise in eye strain.

Information wants to be free, so make some free information.
