   Keyboard and book
Keyboard, my son bought for his tablet and loves it. He has dysgraphia and his handwriting is only legible by God himself and that is because he is always with him. The book I bought for work and have enjoyed reading it to children as a way to bridge the gap and start conversations about the pros and cons of healthy behavior and the difference between obsessive behavior choices and not healthy behavior choices.

   Good for your little gamer!
He is a thinker, so buying him some self-help books and putting them on the shelf work great for him. I have also read this with him a couple of times. I am not sure that it will stop him from playing games, but when I limit his time, there is less of a fight.

   Sweet book. Good message. Good buy
The drawings were fantastic. It was a little long and preachy at points, but I will certainly use it.

The story line and words used were complicated and didn 't flow well to teach a lesson. Hoped for a lesson to be taught with the book. I read this to all 3 of my children, I think they understood it, but didn 't leave anything valuable from it. ( it almost hit what I was looking for, but didn't really give a clear understanding of why it is not good to have balance in wordings that children could understand. )

   Boring and preachy
I really wanted to love this book, I need to like this book - my children are addicts. This book is preachy and every single page is boring, I could not even get through it... and it is a children's book. If you like being preached in a boring and sleep inducing way, this book is for you.
