Much to his surprise, Craig Feigh found it difficult to find a children's book about computers.
His son used computers every day, so Feigh kept looking for a book to which his son could relate. That was nearly 10 years ago.
Even now, Feigh said, it is difficult to find a children's book about everyday technology. He hopes his book, "Little Bit and Big Byte, A Day at the Beach," will offer children a new and fun way to learn about computers.
"Even kindergarten students are computer literate - (computers) are a normal day-to-day event," Feigh said. "This book really is one of a kind."
Feigh's story is about the Romie family. Two brothers, Little Bit and Big Byte, take a trip to the beach. Along the way, they meet friends like Kay Board, Joy (who is as thin as a stick) and Click, the dog. The shapes and actions completed by the characters resemble how regular computer parts function.
The book is written for children ages 6 to 9. About 80 percent of kindergartners in the United States use computers, while 32 percent use the Internet, according to the National Center for Educational Statistics.
