    Bad Children's Books

    Ugh, QA has really taken a nose dive in recent years.

    Harper Collins, I hope you read this...

    Just read my son a book. Well, sort of. It's barely a book and it's barely reading.

    "Harper Collin's World Atlas for Children."

    It's diabolical! It's full of grammatical errors (I'm no expert!), and the very first page is, with no word of a lie, no context removed or information missing:

    "This is a map of the World. It shows all the of the world. This map shows land and water."

    I re-read it several times trying to make sense of it. And it's far from alone in this dictionary of muppetry!

    "Kenya is country in Africa"

    Has anyone else read any books that aren't fit to use as fuel for a fire?

    This is one of the reasons why my daughter reads comics like green lantern, spiderman etc. They go through a fsir bit of QA. Plus always fun storylines!
