The Day Our TV Broke Down

The Day Our TV Broke Down - Betty Ren Wright, Shirlee Jensen, Barbara Bejna This was a nice little story about how a little boy and his dad rediscover how to spend time together in the absence of a TV. The story held my niece's attention, but my little nephew couldn't have been less interested.

In this story there is a certain celebration of the simpler things in life, and a celebration of what I guess we now refer to as "quality time" with family. The story is a good reminder to us all to unplug once in awhile and enjoy the world we're in and the people we're in it with, but it is slower paced and not as vividly illustrated as many other children's books. I suspect adults may find more to like about this book than kids would, but it is still a good little bedtime story.
