Webster's Email

Webster's Email - Hannah Whaley 'Webster's Email' is a very cute book. Children encounter technology constantly, but there aren't too many books for young children which address those interactions. This books fills that much needed niche. The characters are nicely drawn. The rhyming was great for young children, although I found the meter a little bumpy at times. The message itself (that emailing and online interactions can have consequences beyond our control) was a little muddled as everything was almost too happily resolved, but as a introduction to the idea this book works well. This book also features counting to twenty, along with appropriate numerical cues. Overall I would recommend it.
