A high-tech robot boy enjoys a day of low-tech fun on the farm. When he unplugs, Doug discovers a whole world of what's possible. Soon to be the basis of an animated series from DreamWorks and Apple TV! Doug and his parents are off to visit the grandbots. But when their journey is interrupted by some sheep in the road, Doug goes from downloading information about farm animals to actually interacting with them! Doug gets to learn by doing-he herds sheep, milks a cow, gathers eggs, and then uses good old-fashioned "horse sense" to get their car back on the road. Doug Unplugs on the Farm is a lively celebration of farm life and the value of hands-on learning that will encourage kids to go screen-free and explore the real world! A terrific companion to Dan Yaccarino's first book of low-tech learning, Doug Unplugged. Praise for Dan Yaccarino's Doug Unplugged: "Without preaching, [Yaccarino] comments smartly on children's screen time and the necessity of outdoor play and exploration." -Publishers Weekly "Yaccarino is especially good at slipping in the small, nourishing details that are savored upon repeated readings. . . . It's a sweet tale and true to the anti-technology, analog strain that runs through much of Yaccarino's work." -The New York Times Book ReviewShow more
It's easy being a robot, if you play by all the rules-but when Doug gets curious, he decides to unplug and forge his own path. And he discovers a whole world of what's possible. Soon to be the basis of an animated series from DreamWorks and Apple TV! Doug is a robot. His parents want him to be smart, so each morning they plug him in and start the information download. After a morning spent learning facts about the city, Doug suspects he could learn even more about the city by going outside and exploring it. And so Doug . . . unplugs. What follows is an exciting day of adventure and discovery. Doug learns amazing things by doing and seeing and touching and listening-and above all, by interacting with a new friend. Dan Yaccarino's funny story of robot rebellion is a great reminder that sometimes the best way to learn about the world is to go out and be in it. Praise for Doug Unplugged: 'A gentle robotic rebellion.' -USA Today A sweet tale . . . Yaccarino [is] especially good at slipping in the small, nourishing details that are savored upon repeated readings.' -The New York TimesShow more
