A busy Hollywood couple spins a hilarious cautionary tale about what happens when you are glued to your phone. It'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 phones . . . This timely story, brought to life with beautiful bold art, is a great reminder to slow down and savor time together.

I love it when my kid picks out his own books. My 3yo read this one at the library and I just had to check it out for real and bring it home. He couldn't stop laughing at the hilarious adventures the character was having while his dad had his nose in his smartphone. You don't want to "miss" this story! -Melody

You can’t be afraid of animals who live in the dark if you’re an animal who lives in the dark, right? Well, if so, someone forgot to tell Possum, Skunk, and Wolf. The playful illustrations in Night Animals will soothe children’s worries with silly antics and lots of laughs. -Angela
