So, Miss Shari was in a bookstore this past weekend. I mean of course the library or a book store – not unusual. What she discovered was just shocking. I mean how did this wonderful piece of literature escape the attention of The Story Carpet???
Well it did. This gem of a book Good Night iPad by Ann Droyd is now on The Story Carpet’s list of favorites. These things happen don’t happen overnight…it is a gradual progression or decline. Just search or Google effects of screen time for children and the amount of disconnectedness that society has in a socially networked world. It is a sign of the times. This book is a keeper…and a great reminder to take the time to disconnect the gadgets and slow down. Crack open a tangible book more often. It will heighten the senses…keep you and the kids in touch for real. This one will sit right next to Dot by Randi Zuckerberg, a more recent publication, from Harper Collins, about a little girl who loses touch amongst all her gadgets and has to recharge naturally….literally in nature and with real people…it’s all about balance and moderation.
