Blackout by John Rocco

Sometimes your family is just too busy. Too busy with work, friends, and
other things. Too busy to play a simple board game.

Every once in a while, we all need a friendly reminder that we are never too busy for our family. How would you and your family react to a blackout? Absolutely no technology at all. No television! No Internet! No phone!

In John Rocco’s Blackout, which won a Caldecott Honor for 2012, one family learns that a city wide blackout is probably the best thing that has happened to them.Instead of moping around, they reconnect with each other and also their community. Whether its shadow puppets, board games, or dancing in the
streets, John Rocco reminds us that it is important to step away from technology and focus on the simple joys of life
