As a millennial mom, I know that I need to step away from the screen. I’ve seen the infographics, instagram posts, and endless articles on how babies need face time, not FaceTime.
Author Corine Dehghanpisheh has created a tiny tale that brings the point home in wonderful rhyme that lingers long after you’ve turned the last page. You follow the gentle adventures of Baby as documented by his mama. But when Baby gets the smartphone, he’s got his selfie pose down pat. He’s been watching Mama carefully. What happens when Mama finds his masterpieces? A wonderful reminder that the best choice is often to make memories, not just capture them.
My daughter liked the book but I’m afraid she’s abandoned it for her favorite British pig. But every time I pick up my phone to capture her new antics, I’m reminded of the story. It’s a great reminder to parents without being overly preachy. I’ll keep the book in our collection. I’m not sure how often my daughter will read it, but it has definitely stuck with me.
