Babbit and Joan, a Rabbit and a Phone
Sometimes friends are best off with a little time apart. That’s true for Babbit, a rabbit, and Joan, his phone. Yet Babbit has never left Joan at home before. Does he dare go out on a solo excursion? How will he know what to do? What if he gets lost?
This charming, low-tech tale reveals that a small adventure can open up big possibilities—for seeing new places, meeting new friends, and coming home to share all about it.
“Turu’s bright forest colors and creatures liven up the pages, and the humor will entertain adult readers, too. . . . An excellent way to encourage young readers toward low-tech adventures of their own.”
—San Francisco Book Review
“This age of technology is amazing. With all its inventive supply, we are never left with down time. While it is great for bringing a whole wider world into close-up view, it has also widened the blurred focus of those things that were actually close. This cute story takes up this obsessive love affair with our phones. Babbit realizes his thoughtless use of his phone, and he finds new adventures and friends he had not imagined.”
