I don't normally review picture books but this one really caught my attention.
Dot. is a little girl growing up with today's technology and very "plugged in". When She is told to go outside to play she rediscovers the old way of connecting with the world and friends and surprisingly has fun doing it
Randi Zuckerberg also wrote the recently released "Dot Complicated" for adults about living with social media today.
And yes Randi is related to the famous Facebook Zuckerberg.

The authors have created memorable characters in Ted Ingersoll and Ham Johnson, two revenuers working for Hoover to catch bootleggers along the Mississippi during prohibition in 1927. Dixie Clay, a young newlywed becomes a bootlegger for her philandering husband and has a reputation for making the best whiskey in the region. Along comes an orphan who needs a home and record rainfall that won't stop. Levees are undermined and priorities change. Very good, I recommend this book!
