The Boring Book
A perfectly mild unpacking of the nuances and subtleties of boredom. Most kids have used the phrase "I'm bored" in their life, most adults too. We've lost touch with being able to entertain ourselves and rely on being 'entertained'. This book is the best antidote to that idea (which I think needs to be eradicated)
What does boredom mean exactly? Does everyone experience it? Even animals? Is life a continual dichotomy between fun and boring? Is boredom a matter of perspective? As the child demonstrates with bemusement, sometimes wandering through such answerless wonderings can itself be the antidote to boredom. Each page offers a thought experiment examining the nature of boredom sure to provoke curiosity and insight.
