The Olden Days

Actual CSAP question from my third grader's study guide:

If you wanted to know about the desert would you look in:
A) an encyclopedia
B) the dictionary
C) an atlas
D) your English Language textbook

Maura: Mommy, what's an encyclopedia?

Mommy: It's a big set of books that have specific information about a topic. If you want to know more about a certain topic, you'd read about it in an encyclopedia.

Maura: Why wouldn't you just google it?

Mommy: Well, when I was a little girl, the Internet hadn't been invented yet. We had to look in the encyclopedia.

Maura (sounding devastated): Oh, Mommy, what did you do without your Facebook?

(Sounds of Daddy's laughter can be heard from the other room where he's been eavesdropping...)
