Is this book trying to tell us something? You bet! While our kids play with virtual pets online, the dog looks forlornly at the yard and ball, waiting for some kid time. If subtle hints go unnoticed, grab this book and then get outside!
A high-tech robot boy enjoys a day of low-tech fun on the farm.
Doug and his parents are off to visit the grandbots. But when their journey is interrupted by some sheep in the road, Doug goes from downloading information about farm animals to actually interacting with them!
Doug gets to learn by doing—he herds sheep, milks a cow, gathers eggs, and then uses good old-fashioned “horse sense” to get their car back on the road.
Doug Unplugs on the Farm is a lively celebration of farm life and the value of hands-on learning that will encourage kids to go screen-free and explore the real world! A terrific companion to Dan Yaccarino’s first book of low-tech learning, Doug Unplugged.
