One morning Emma gets up early to watch television. But the TV won't work. No one can fix it-not Mom, not Dad, not even the repairman. Neither can a balloon or a song or playing horsey fix Emma's disappointment. But then Emma's mother reads her a book. "Read it again," says Emma. "And again." And when Emma's father finally realizes what's wrong with the TV-it was just unplugged!-Emma is too busy reading to care. The power of books to enthrall has rarely been presented in such a clever, simple way for the TV-savvy preschool set.
