Oh no! Wordsworth’s friends are all ensnared by their electronic devices! What’s in his pocket thatwill help save them? Wordsworth the Mouse hasn’t seen his friends much this summer. Where have they been? Too busy watching movies on their computers or playing video games. Now, they are hopelessly entangled by cords and cables. A mysterious, elderly mouse tells Wordsworth that the secret to freeing them has been in his pocket all along.
This children’s book, the fourth in the Wordsworth the Poet series by former educator Frances H. Kakugawa, highlights the importance of “IRL” (in real life) experiences like going to the beach and talking face-to-face with friends. An excellent book for families to read together and begin a discussion on instituting a family policy for limiting screentime and making time for creative activities together.
