Dot. What a great name for a new children’s book. It’s a take on dot com. Brilliant. The book is the story of a little girl named Dot who uses gadgets all the time. So much so that she’s forgotten how to play. Something to which so many of us can relate.
She can talk on the phone, on the tablet, on the computer. Yep, we all know about that. How old was your little one the first time he or she figured out how to use an iPad or your smartphone? Yeah, mine too!
Dot recharges and remembers she knows how to do thinks like surf (in real life, not on the Internet). She can “swipe” when she paints, she can “search” outside. All the social media lingo suddenly turns back into real-life activities for Dot.
This book is sweet and simple. Even though it’s a picture book for kids 4-8 years old, Dot’s story resonates with kids of all ages — including parents! It’s a great reminder to turn off the technology and get back into real life.
Dot is written by Randi Zuckerberg, the CEO and Founder of Dot Complictaed. Her last name should ring a bell … she served as the marketing director of Facebook for six years, so she knows a thing or two about the Internet and social media.
