You are going to love this book!!!!

 

This book has such a great message!

Doug is a robot.  His parents want him to be smart, so each morning they plug him in and start information download.  After a morning spent in learning facts about the city, Doug suspects he could learn even more about the city by going outside and actually, physically exploring it.  And so... Doug... unplugs!  What follow is an exciting day of adventure and discovery.  Doug learns amazing things by doing and seeing and touching and listening - and above all by interacting with a new friend.

Dan Yaccarino's funny story of robot rebellion is a great reminder that sometimes the best way to learn about the world is to go out and be in it!

The message?  It is more fun by DOING (unplugging) than by memorizing facts (PLUGGED IN).  Unplug and engage yourself in your world no matter if you are a kid or a parent.
