A reminder to sometimes put down our technological advances for some outside adventures. Discuss fun activities.

This book is a great reminder of the things we miss when we are busy on technology. This story shows a little girl named Lydia who is curious what she and her family are missing by staying in on their computers and phones so she goes outside and has an amazing adventure. She then returns home to take away all her parents technology and has them join her in the adventures outside.

This is a good book about how technology can distract others from seeing the world around them. A little girl tries to say hello to her family when they are all busy with electronics and decides to go outside. She goes on an adventure saying hello to everything around including people, nature, buildings. It is a great book for children to realize there is more outside of the technology world that has seemed to be taking over.

This story's protagonist follows a little girl who wants the attention of her parents and her brother, Bob. Unfortunately for her, everyone is immersed in devices like computers, phones, and tablets, and they ignore her or brush her off when she says, "Hello!" Because of this she heads outside and plays there, where the illustrations are in full color to show the vivacity of the setting. The little girl meets a horse and then many other animals, some fanciful and exotic - even a dinosaur! She then gets a call from her parents calling her back to the house, but manages to convince the family to play outside with her, and it finishes with all of them happily riding animals in the colorful outdoors.

In our uber-connected, screen addicted world, this book is great for reminding children of the beauty of the outdoors and for reminding all audiences of how harmful it can be to be too engrossed in a computer or the internet. There's a whole world out there you could be missing. ( )

This book is mirror for adults and how children could perceived the influence of electronic devices in adults' live. Not to mention the wonders and necessity of being unplugged for tapping into a wider, freer and wonderful way of existing. Love the simple and whimsical illustrations, with bold colors for backgrounds.
