“TJ Put Your Phone Away” Children's Book Review- #review #kidlit

Posted by Debra Ann Elliott at 6:40 AM
Disclosure: I received a copy for review. However, all opinions are my own.

As a grandparent and writer, I love discovering great kid lit especially in my own backyard. TJ Put Your Phone Away is written by two local teachers physical education teacher Blake Gilchrist, and his wife, Erin, who co-authored and illustrated their new children’s book.

TJ Put Your Phone Away tells the story of a middle school kid who misses life because he's glued to his cell phone. Parent's can relate to this book as well. Kids today seem to be glues to their cell phone and parents can learn a valuable lesson as well.. My grandson loves this book and we give it two thumbs up and five stars.

You can read the Gilchrists' story here. Also, be sure to check out TJ Put Your Phone Away FB page.

 T.J. Put Your Phone Away is a MUST HAVE for a family in 2013. The authors of the book say... "It's for people, like us, overwhelmingly consumed with our handheld devices, social media, and communications via internet, that we often forget human interaction and what it's like to live off-screen." -Erin Gilchrist Ph.D. "The small lessons that can be taught to a child about manners, paying attention to the people you love, the respect of personal interactions, and the importance of relationships, are lessons that we all need to be reminded of, no matter the age." -Blake Gilchrist Follow TJ on twitter: @TJPhoneAway

You can purchase TJ Put Your Phone Away on Amazon for $6.99.
