OVERUSED CELLULAR DEVICES TURN CHILDREN INTO OGRES…

Welcome to NOMOPHOBIA – A PLACE IN TIME WHERE OVERUSED CELLULAR DEVICES TURN CHILDREN INTO OGRES.
This is a somewhat true, mostly exaggerated story of modern-day children – children who have spent way too much time on their phones. One night the children are mysteriously turned into ogres. At first the children blame each other for their condition. When they finished blaming each other, they worked together to find a cure. They searched the house for a cure…but they could not find one. They tried to wash the ogre off…but it stayed on.
They had all but given up when sissy’s phone accidently falls into the fish tank. When the phone gets wet, a hidden message appears: YOU WERE TURNED INTO OGRES, BECAUSE ON THE PHONE YOU DID STAY! NOW, PUT IT AWAY AND GO OUT AND PLAY!
So the children rushed outside, where they returned to normal. That day the children learned a valuable lesson. OVERUSED CELL PHONES TURN CHILDREN INTO OGRES.
“I absolutely love this book!! This is the perfect book to inspire your kids (or grandkids) to set down their phones. There is so much more to life than just a screen. I am a cell phone addict myself, this book encourages me to stop and smell the roses.”– Amazing Supermom, Amazon

Everyone seems to spend too much time on their phones, and that’s especially true of children. Nomophobia is a great little book that spreads the message of putting phones down and playing for a change. Children will laugh at the hilarious graphics! The children never go outside to play, but spend all day staring at their phones. When they wake up one day and look like ogres, they are afraid. Then, the phones have a message that will bring them back to themselves….go outside and play. The artwork is really unusual, but brings out the fun for kids.
