‘Can I play on your phone?
Can I play a video game?
Can I hit the cat?
Can I see if the remote bounces?
Can I see if my sister bounces?
Can I watch TV?
Can I play on your old phone?
Can I go on the computer?’
If you have a bored 6-9 year old in the house can I put in a cheeky plug for the newly released FIREBOYS COLLECTION e-book. It’s been described as an exciting, easy-to-read series starring three unlikely characters. There’s Red (the competitive one), Leo (the serious one) and Spark (the loveable idiot.) The stories have strong plots and quirky characters. When I was a kid I found this length of story (about 10,000 words) cool to read because they’re easy to understand and a good introduction to longer stories. Plus it feels great when you actually finish a WHOLE BOOK. (Just click on the cover to be taken to the Amazon page.)
Or, just let the kids use your phone. But don’t get the high score on Temple run, they really hate that.
