Unlike many other books (i.e. When You Give a Mouse an iPhone), we don't preach at your kids or vilify screen time. In fact, we encourage young, developing minds to use technology as it can often be used for educational purposes (and hey, a little entertainment can't hurt).
However, studies have shown how a failure to moderate screen time can lead to detrimental effects. This includes displaced sleep, poor mental and physical health, poor diet, reduced immunity, sedative behavior, obesity, and stunted growth.
That's where we come in. We don't want you to be the bad guy when limiting your child's screen iPad or TV time. With the help of Bo and Whimsy, our book will act as a companion to aid you in brainstorming creative alternatives to technology with your little ones.
Ideated by students at the University of Washington in Seattle. Authored, illustrated, and printed in the USA.
