Now that is an interesting observation.
These days, they’re carrying bulletproof backpacks holding masks and cleaning supplies.
They’re prepearing the kids for a great career in physical labour. After all, how many educated folk manage to get good jobs these days.
I thought backpack safety was a thing.
They need a backpack to carry their stuff from the bedroom to the kitchen?
KIndles VERY bad. . .they’re like cocaine for bibliophiles. . .buy, store, buy, store. . .
They put the ‘back’ in “back to school”
Chargers and battery packs.
They’re in training for when they get to high school and can be cheerleaders for their team, the Notre Dame Igors.
You can thank mega-publishers like Pearson for their stranglehold on the textbook game and the kids’ oversized backpacks stuffed with books, workbooks, etc.
There have been some studies that show that you absorb info differently using an ebook vs. an actual book and so far, actual books are better. A part of me wonders if this is because we older folks aren’t actually used to reading ebooks and if that will change with the younger generation.
There are more scholarly works, but this will give you the general idea.
It takes a lot of space and bulk to make them bullet resistant. Especially against the higher energy rounds from an Assault Rifle.
Adore my Kindle…listening to it now…
Sherpa in training?
Our kids had to buy their class books. I womder if the school system gets a cut.
