Doug unplugs on the farm by Dan Yaccarino - ADVISABLE

Yaccarino, Dan Doug unplugs on the farm.  PICTURE BOOK.  Knopf (Random), 2014.  $18.  

Doug the robot is headed towards a farm with his robot parents. On the way, they plug in and learn all kinds of facts about the farm and the animals, but once they arrive, they are all unplugged and experience farm life first hand. 
Dougs parents learned their lesson from his adventures in the city.  While plugged in knowledge can be helpful, hands on knowledge adds that extra kick.  Yaccarino continues to deliver a good book - illustrations and message combine well.
