Dot Unplugged

By Candlewick Press
Illustrated by The Jim Henson Company

Can Dot and her family make it through a rainy day without any tech?

It’s pouring rain, and the power’s gone out at Dot’s house. Should they take it as a challenge to honor the National Day of Unplugging? Playing outside is out of the question, and so is using the many devices Dot is accustomed to. But what might the basement hold? Dot, her friend Hal, Mom, Dad, and Scratch find lots of exciting stuff, including an old spinner game. It turns out it’s super fun to watch Dad do charades, Mom speed-sculpt from clay, Hal tweet-sing a song, and Dot hunt for something surprising. Their improvised game keeps them so entertained, they just might decide to stay unplugged a bit longer!

  • There is a growing awareness of how much time kids spend in front screens. This title addresses the issue in a family-friendly, humorous way.
  • Pub date is timed to coincide with the National Day of Unplugging, which takes place the second Friday in March every year.
  • The theme of this book beautifully reinforces the theme of the Dot TV series--that technology is great, but knowing when to step away from it is important, too.
