McDonnell, Patrick Tek: The Modern Cave Boy PICTURE BOOK Little, Brown and Company, 2016. $15.99 Content: G.
Tek is a cave boy who never wants to leave his cave. He stays in there all day glued to his electronic devices and his friends and parents can’t convince him to come out. Eventually a large volcano explodes and forces Tek out of his cave and he starts to appreciate the world around him.
This book is adorable. The book is shaped like an iPad and the illustrations are hilarious. I love the message of disconnecting and enjoying the people and places around us. Fantastic book for kids (and adults) today.
