About the Book

Haddy Paddy and her family are completely hooked on their cell phones, computers, and technology. They spend more time looking down at their devices than actually talking to each other or anyone else. Olive Green and her family live nearby. As farmers, they love to spend time outside playing and enjoying nature. Olive uses her phone only when she needs it.

When a winter storm prevents the Paddys from leaving town, the Greens invite them to their home. Haddy and her family aren’t sure how they’ll survive without WiFi. In the end, the high-tech Paddy family discovers the joy in downtime.

A rhyming and whimsical picture book for children, Get Off Your Phone calls attention to society’s reliance on technology. It encourages kids to put the phone away and enjoy time spent with each and the outdoors.
