"Saws?" I asked. I laughed.
"My son is obsessed with tools... especially saws."
I saw that she was serious.
"Well, there's a great book that's a board book kind of thing that has removable cardboard tools..."
"Oh, that's too young for him. I need something older."
Too young I thought? She did say he was two, right?
"Even a book with a lawnmower in it..."
"Oh, I wrote a book about a man who mowed lawns... but it wasn't published."
"Too bad! I'd buy it right now!"
"My son isn't interested in truck books or car books he wants saw books. He reads the Home Depot catalog."
All I have to say is, kids are are a strange breed.
