About the Book


We all know how critical reading is to a child's development. Yet, we also know how challenging it can be to get our kids to lay off the electronic devices and practice their reading. 

What's the solve? How about a book that explores why reading continues to be special in a digital world.    

Books Don't Need Batteries tells the story of how Paige, a living book, finds a way to compete with Sal, a resident mobile phone. Sal's so impressed with himself and attention-seeking (unfortunately, just like a real smart phone), it's hard for Paige to be heard.    

In a world besotted with devices, Books Don't Need Batteries is a story that resonates with parents and kids alike.
