Or WTH is wrong with people!? I saw this article today and have decided that people are crazy. Just plain nuts. They like to use whatever scare tactics they can. I mean, I understand that lead is dangerous. I do. But really, are kids going to eat all of the text in a Madeline book? Chewing covers I have seen. Nibbling a page or two? Sure. But eating just the text? And probably a few books worth? No. Kids just don't usually eat books by the time their parents would leave them alone with these kinds of books. I love my used book shops and I still have all of my books from when I was little. Heck, I have some books from when my mom was little. Mike's mom even gave me his books from when he was little. And I plan to give these books to the baby and I have no fears that she's going to have any health probelms due to lead poisoning.
What do you guys think? Are they crazy or am I? At least I have the librarians on my side.
