Synopsis from Goodreads:
In #BabyLove: My Toddler Life, a new children’s picture book by Corine Dehghanpisheh, 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.
This book would be very fun to read to a child because of the rhyming in it. The message behind it is very real in today's world. Although it is good to capture moments, it's even better to live in them. All too often we hide behind phone screens and miss out on important moments and then wonder where the time has gone. The book can be read fast, and it has colors that would stand out to a child. It's full of praise so your child will feel wonderful when you're reading it to them.
I found it pretty cool that the perspective of the book is told through the phone screen, proving that we really do spend too much time on our phones. As soon as I got this book my best friend's child popped up into my head. I feel as if she's broken at least two of my friend's phones from her curiosity. I'll be sending this book on its way to those two so she can read it to her.
DISCLAIMER: I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This doesn't sway my opinion over the book in any way.
