A curious toddler loves to play…especially with his mommy’s smartphone!
When Mommy finds him using her phone without permission, it’s the perfect teaching moment. Mommy reminds her little one that what matters most in life is time together filled with love and attention.
Her simple reminder: Put down our phones.
I get where the author was headed with this: put your phone down and be together. It seems like this is more of a lesson for parents than for toddlers though… and maybe that’s the point? Teach the parent while they read to their kid?
It does seem like the mom in the story could use the lesson, as she’s on her phone throughout the first few pages. I guess they both learn the lesson by the end, so point made.
… I think I’m analyzing this story a bit too much.
Anyway, well-written. Age appropriate vocabulary. Rhyming works well in this one (it’s not forced! Hurrah!)
Beautiful artwork and excellent layout. Font choice is spot-on. Colors are bright and appealing.
Excellent layout and text treatment. Really lovely work overall. This is a good example of how big a book title should be when you’re designing for children. No matter how small the thumbnail is, the title is clearly legible. It’s not obscured by a busy background, and the font is fun and interesting (and it fits the story/book) without being too ornate. Corine has some solid design and illustration skills.
