From this month's Bookslut
There's a new column, Bookslut with Baby
, which is going to be looking at books for small kids (I presume). Unfortunately, its author finished off the column with:
Need another reason for wanting my child to be a bookslut? Because being a bookslut is far better than being a mathwhore.
Hmmm. Being both a bookslut and
a mathwhore, I fail to see the problem. Educate your child to delight in words and also in numbers, why not? My parents managed it...
OK, I'm probably over-reacting...
