I’m bummed that @singpolyma’s Big Buck Bunny Board Book project did not reach its crowdfunding goal. (See Free myths for the next generations for why the project is so on-point.) But I’ll take it as belief confirmation.
I’m glad that the project is pressing on. I will be ordering copies and hope it eventually becomes a big hit: read https://www.crowdsupply.com/singpolyma/big-buck-bunny-board-book/updates/1854 for more.
Seeing the ebook and reading again that it was “inspired by board books adapting classic literature” increases my curiosity about the format and genre. The entire story text of the BBBBB is the subject of this topic. Does language have a name? Baby Pictorial English?
I’m assuming there isn’t an open mass collaboration project to create free cultural works in this format, and that BBBBB is the first. Seems there’s lots of possibilities and fun to be had.
