I don't remember a lot about this one, beyond the fact that I definitely read it as a kid.

This story would be great in the classroom to teach students to not be watching tv all the time and that there are more fun things to do other than watch television. ( )

This book told a really good story about how watching too much tv can spilt up good relationships you have with people. When you watch too much tv it showed that you lose creativity to be outside and you lose the ability to be able to talk with those close by to you. ( )
