Raymond the Raccoon (By: Jesse Hewitt )
Recent studies show that more than 80% of Australian parents are worried about the negative effects associated with their children having too much screen time (1). Unfortunately, their worries are justified, as research highlights an extensive list of health and wellbeing concerns related to extended screen time usage. Some include: sleep problems, behaviour problems, learning issues, and obesity (2). Our book is created to assist teachers and parents in facilitating productive conversations around building healthy screen-time habits. It is purposefully designed using pedagogical strategies to teach children the importance of disengaging from screens.
Follow Raymond, a loveable Raccoon, on a quest through the woods as he experiences some of the harsh realities involved in a culture dominated by screen obsession. Through following Raymond’s quest, children discover that their health, wellbeing, and friendships can be greatly improved by disconnecting from screens and reengaging with the real world.
