Earlier this year we splurged and bought Mike an Amazon Kindle e-reader. He reads PDF files for work every day, and he loves reading them on his Kindle instead of on paper. He also uses the Kindle to read children’s classics that are in the public domain to Emma, Johnny, and Lily.
Emma wanted a Kindle of her very own, so she made one, complete with side navigation buttons and lots of “text”! She was also nice enough to make one for Johnny, Lily, and a friend who was visiting. The friend was a little confused since he didn’t know what a kindle was; thankfully he was still quite gracious in accepting his gift!
I remember taking floppy discs apart to make “record players” as a child, and both Mike and I made our own paper computers. All three of my kids have been known to use blocks as improvised telephones. Do you remember making “electronics” as a child?
