I also love that we learn new information and ideas through a story. This story is applicable to our own lives. As parents and educators, we can put ourselves in the father’s shoes and use what he said to our own children. It teaches the process of deconstructing media in a way that both adults and children can understand.
It’s not just an informative book, it’s a guide!
There are great discussion and lesson topics. Don’t just read it, but ponder and apply it!
