'Cyrus and the book' or (De)Construction of the literate infant

Mom: I know, I'll take some cute photos of Cyrus in front of a book.

Aw, that's adorable, he's looking at the picture.

Oh, cool, he's trying to turn the page!

Yes, you're amazing! We've taught you so much about books already!

Almost got it! Our little scholar, I'm so proud.

Good idea, get closer for better leverage.

Wait, what are you doing?

Cyrus, that's not how you read a book.

Dad: Do you think he'll get a paper cut?

A well-digested bit of literature.
