‘Many children don't know how to play without a screen – this book is a small inoculation against that state of being. It requires children to challenge themselves, find solutions and rely on their skills and imaginations. Most of all, it asks them to slow their pace enough to really observe, to examine, to contemplate and to wonder.’
