“Ending with an invitation to all dusk explorers, this book persuasively advocates for unplugged, tech-free days, beckoning readers to get outside and play, play, play.” — Kirkus, Starred review / “I’ve been getting amazing feedback from students and teachers. I know it’s a challenge to be engaging virtually, but you did a phenomenal job.” — Elizabeth Brown, Prosper ISD
