Skateboard Sam - Short Stories for Kids Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

It is short, yes, but it's wonderfully and appealingly colourful, with extremely well-caricatured figures. Sam has a new skateboard and his perfect day is skateboarding in the park. The story verses on each page have an attractive sing-song rhyming pattern. This short tale is the sort of thing you could read a child at bedtime. If you can't tire your little son/daughter with a cursory run-through, there's masses of jazzy detail in each of the cartoons for you to pick over and talk about.
I would recommend reading the Kindle version a laptop or iPad/tablet where the rich colours will make the cartoons come to life. The black and white keyboard Kindle isn't really conducive to a comic-style booklet. I hope this is published in hard copy, perhaps as a cardboard book - I think a child would enjoy turning the pages rather than `clicking' them electronically!
Sweet and good fun for children.
