Such great books! My son, John Jr. is 10 and exploring puberty and his sexuality. Your books helped a lot as a tool for me to explain what was happening to him.

Dear Tracy Bryan and David Barrow:
I’m very pleased to announce that the July 2016 issue of our online book review magazine “MBR Bookwatch” features a review of “Put Away Your Phone!”.
Here is the review:
MBR Bookwatch: July 2016

Put Away Your Phone!
Tracy Bryan and David Barrow
4900 LaCross Rd., North Charleston, SC 29406
Ebook: ASIN: B01F6DR1SO, $5.99
Paper: 9780692700884, $9.99 http://amzn.com/1530857929
Emma is an unusual child: she doesn’t like smart phones very much, can’t understand why adults are always playing with them, and often wants to admonish those around her to “Put away your phone!” and enjoy the world.
When a visit to the zoo shows people on their phones everywhere, Emma decides to count the offenders – and during her passion to observe and confront others’ inattention, she finds herself separated from her parents. What to do?
Put Away Your Phone! lends to parental read-aloud and will appeal to picture book readers with good reading skills as it follows Emma’s realistic world and how she comes to view it differently.
It’s a fine example of coming to terms with one’s environment and it provides engaging color drawings by David Barrow as it moves beyond the challenge of a phone-dominated world and into how a child’s viewpoint and righteous indignation can be funneled into more positive methods of handling life.
Kids and adults will find it a delightful read that takes a modern dilemma and views it from a new perspective, offering lessons for cell phone users and nonusers alike that teaches new emotional management skills for tackling life’s annoyances and challenges.
