Description

Ever wonder where that missing sock went? How about that last piece of a puzzle set? Are these items just lost? Maybe, or perhaps the Invisibles had something to do with it. The Invisibles are adorable, imaginative creatures that like to hide and cause a little trouble now and then. Children are the only ones to help keep them out of mischief. But children have been too busy on their screens lately.

The Invisibles are bored, and chaos follows. Can children find time for both screens and the real world? Or will the Invisibles…be invisible…forever?

Our guest on the podcast Eleanor Chun is writer and children's book author. She  wrote a children's books geared towards kids in the early years to enhance that sense of self regulation around screen time use and also highlight the value of imaginative play. I really enjoyed having this conversation with Eleanor - there was a lightheartedness and playfulness that kids need to see more from us as adults. Thank you for your time and bringing us this book. You can grab a copy of the book at www.theinvisibles.ca and also follow Eleanor @eleanorchun.
