More to Learning
The best way to learn about the world is to experience it - to live in it! Doug's rebellion is a sweet story about how a boy-robot discovers he can learn from the real thing rather than being plugged in. The illustrations are bold, color-filled blocks with swooping, curving black lines - simple images with a great amount of movement to attract a child's eye. Adults will see the book as a commentary on screen time, but children will simply see the power of fun and freedom in Doug's escapades!
