Does anyone remember the satisfying thwack of a typewriter key hitting the paper? Those were the days. Jacob and his Bear friends might not see these relics at mom’s or dad’s office anymore, but at school they can explore that ancient artifact called a typewriter. Exploring, deconstructing, or testing out old appliances is a favorite activity at this age. Here, the boys get to see the cause-and-effect that happens when they push the keys, and hunting for a special letter is both a game and a literacy exercise. Jacob looks like he can’t wait to see what letter comes next!
