Picture Book Review: Dot, by Randi Zuckerberg

Waaaaaaaaaaait a minute...Zuckerberg? Yes, she's his sister. Also, it seems, a quite capable writer. Here we meet Dot, who is as tech-savvy as many young children these days (even S., who is quite happy to play in the mud or sort buttons for hours, quizzed me the other day on exactly how and why you tag people on Facebook).
Dot knows how to tag, and surf, and tweet, on any number of devices. Her mother finally says, "Go outside, Dot! Time to reboot! Recharge! Restart!" There, Dot and her friends remember more interactive ways to tag, surf, tweet, etc., all adorable illustrated by Joe Berger. This one will be hitting story time before it even hits the shelves (loosely fitting next week's already chosen theme of...dots!)  I hope we will see more of both Dot and Ms. Zuckerberg in the future.
As promised, an easy and obvious gift suggestion - include a coupon good for one day of exploring outside with Mom or Dad! Maybe even offer to bring some friends along, pack a lunch, and head somewhere you aven't been before.
Thank-you to HarperCollins for the review copy!
