I received an ebook copy of this book for review. These days kids spend so much time in front of a screen. It seems as if they are constantly glued to a TV, smart phone, computer, laptop, etc. As a Mom, I want to encourage them to find activities that do not involve a screen. I want them to spend time playing outside, doing crafts, experimenting with new things and just spending time with family or friends. This book from Team Golfwell is big help in accomplishing that goal because it is filled with ideas for kids to do that do not involve a screen. It's called Brilliant Screen-Free Stuff To Do With Kids and you can purchase it from Amazon in paperback form for $9.95.
