This book discusses a common problem facing most families today. The cell phone is an integral part of parents' lives. Young children who are seeking a parent's attention cannot fail to notice how many times they must compete with that phone. The toddler in this story bemoans the fact that her dad is always answering the phone, whether they are on the playground, at dinner or in the car. One day, her father 's phone breaks; the little girl is thrilled because she finally has her father's undivided attention. Her father realizes her frustration, and he agrees that he will turn the phone off one hour each day to make a special time for his daughter.

I think that if we are honest, all of us have been frustrated by the amount of time we spend with new technological advances. As communications are expanded, we find ourselves more cut off from those closest to us. I give the book five stars because the concept is one that needs to be discussed. Recommended as a bedtime story or read aloud for preschool and primary grade children.

I received a copy of this book and voluntarily decided to read and review for no monetary compensation.
