Webster, an adorable little spider, is about to learn a lesson on technology etiquette. His dad steps forward and talks to him about how, when and where Webster should be using his beeping, flashing electronic toys. Dad specifically points out that gadgets are unacceptable at mealtime, bathtime, reading time or off to bed time. Webster can't help thinking that that is a lot of time to be separated from his electronic friends and he being a techie geek, can't even envision his life "unplugged". You see technology IS his life but being an obedient, loving son he listens very carefully to what his dad is trying to convey to him. After carefully contemplating dad's concerns, Webster steps forward and says: "Ok," said Webster "I've got it now, but so we both agree... if there's a time and place for everything, that doesn't just mean me?" I think now Dad is going to get a lesson on his technology etiquette and how he uses his gadgets. The tables just may be turning... I loved the message of the book. We must teach each other (kids and adults alike) the safe and appropriate use of technology in our daily lives. This book can be used as a catalyst for conversations about taking care of electronic toys, screen time planning for both the young and the old, and developing healthy attitudes towards our screen-based toys. May digital manners reign!
