I recently saw a study reported which said that, more and more, children resent their parent’s smartphone use. And, voila, here is a wonderful children’s book which illustrates the frustration of children and all of life’s enjoyments that their parents are missing out on.
A trip to the park escalates into a whimsical stampede of fun before the parent begin to realize what’s really happening around them. The vividly colorful illustrations are an absolute delight, and the hand-lettered typography is fun and engaging. Judging from the survey, I think many children would appreciate this charming book — I know my own kids do! — and is a must-buy for libraries catering to children.
