'Books For Christmas? What The Heck Is That?'

Book2Book - Wednesday 22 Dec 2010

It should serve as a cautionary tale for any parent who has decided to go down the 'learning present' route this Christmas.

Footage of a three-year-old boy losing his Christmas cheer over receiving books as a festive gift has become an internet hit.

Hmmm..I am torn about this one. Although it is sad how the boy reacted, he is only 3. If my 3 year old expected only toys, he would have probably thrown a fit too. Now if this boy was taught what a treasure books are, his reaction would likely have been different.
