You're Missing It! WARNING Before reading this book, make sure you re ready to walk the talk Because as cute and hilarious as the artwork is, the message is hard hitting One of my very favorite movie scenes is from Hook, starring Robin Williams and Dustin Hoffman There s a point at which Peter s wife, Moira, takes his cell phone and flings it out the window in frustration She gives one of the most heart wrenching speeches that ends with and you are missing it CHECK OUT THE VIDEO CLIP HERESo as I blink th WARNING Before reading this book, make sure you re ready to walk the talk Because as cute and hilarious as the artwork is, the message is hard hitting One of my very favorite movie scenes is from Hook, starring Robin Williams and Dustin Hoffman There s a point at which Peter s wife, Moira, takes his cell phone and flings it out the window in frustration She gives one of the most heart wrenching speeches that ends with and you are missing it CHECK OUT THE VIDEO CLIP HERESo as I blink the wetness from my eyes, this book is the story of a little boy who goes to the park with his father Everything is so bright, cheery, and colorful as the boy sees EVERYTHING happening all around him there are birds, squirrels, dogs, flowers, butterflies, other kids, and even other distracted parents While the boy marvels at the world all around him, including an escaped purple rhinoceros, his dad is MISSING IT ALL because he can t look away from his phone It becomes almost obnoxiously silly to see all that he s missing Thankfully, the dad eventually realizes what s going on before it s too late Nevertheless, on the final page we re left with yet another child running along, trying to get her mom s attention since she s on her phone The illustrations were done with a 2 pencil, an eraser, a Faber Castell artist pen, and watercolors Forchildren s literature, middle grade literature, and YA literature reviews, feel free to visit my personal blog at The Miller Memo Good message for parents Storyline overall okay Loved the colorful illustrations Could be good for story time. It is sad we need a picture book to remind parents to stop looking at their phones This was an adorable book about how parents need to get off of their phones and pay attention to the world around them, especially their kids I ve accused a few books of beingfor parents than for kids books with self affirming plattitudes, books with kids being adorable My point in saying that was that the story was going to resonate with parents rather than with kids But this book is blatently a moral for parents As you can guess from the cover, the moral is GET OFF YOUR PHONE There could be a charging rhino and you wouldn t even notice Yes, I am posting this review from my phone while my kids are eating breakfast Beautifully illustrated Nice message. Kids are not the only ones that need to take a tech break A son takes his dad to the park where lots of amazing events occur, but the dad keeps missing it because his eyes are glued to his phone Finally, after many attempts, the son gets his dad to participate in their outing A really good message with a fun delivery. Great message Loved the illustrations. A busy Hollywood couple spins a hilarious cautionary tale about what happens when you are glued to your phoneIt s a lively day at the neighborhood park Birds are singing, squirrels are frolicking, dogs are causing a commotion and wide eyed children are enthralled by it all Too bad the parents are missing everything It s going to take something really BIG to get them to disengage from their phonesThis timely story, brought to life with beautiful bold art, is a great reminder to slow down and savor time together Will his dad finally see the beautiful moments around him The illustrations are just too cute The squirrels had me laughing through out the book The colors were so bold and vivid I wish I was inside the book I think it needed a littletext and interaction This is a great book for parents to see that time spent with your child is precious and you should be having adventures outside with your children instead of being on your phone Enjoy the outdoors
