Surprised this is aimed at young readers

My son and I love Lane Smith's "It's a Little Book" so I did not hesitate to let him check out "It's a Book."

But to my surprise, the last sentence on the last page is, "It's a book, Jackass."

While I understand the lighthearted intent, I am not a fan of introducing this type of twist on words to young kids. Especially when so many young kids (I'm not talking about tweens or teens) barely understand the technology the book is poking fun at to understand the point the book is trying to make.

This is very much a picture book for an adult, or a tween, not a young kid.
