Just today I received a copy of my Touchstone magazine editorial colleague Anthony Esolen's newest book, Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child (ISI). I've only skimmed through it, mind you, but even that quick a glance has prompted several "Amens" from this Baptist.
In the book, Tony deals with issues ranging from letting children be outside to giving them unsupervised time to think and play. From the title of a chapter I haven't flipped through yet (on the shallow and the banal), I'm quite sure he deals with the question of…shiver…video games.
This is a great book to give as a gift to parents or grandparents in your life, or as a wedding present for a young couple just starting out. I look forward to sitting down and reading it carefully.
Get a copy today. Don't wait for the movie. Or the video game.
