This book encourages families to unplug and try other kinds of activities, everything from playing board games to nature walks to crafts to cooking and more. The case is very well made. Early in the book, it is suggested that kids and their families try to unplug from devices for even as little as 30 minutes. They know that this can be a challenge.
The book is divided into sections based on the seasons. For instance in spring, there is a suggested scavenger hunt. Summer suggestions include a bark and leaf boat regatta, while for fall, you could make bonfire bread or baked apples. One of the winter suggestions is building a snow fort.
This book has many photos throughout. They add to the text and are quite appealing. In all, this is a good book to get folks away from devices and into the real world.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
