Unplugged: Ella Gets Her Family Back


Product Description

|Grades 2-5| Ella is really frustrated. Lately it seems like the whole family has forgotten how to be together. Instead of playing Hangman and making waffles, everyone is talking on cell phones, playing video games, and using the computer. What’s a girl to do? When Ella finally makes her move, it gets everyone’s attention. At first there is some confusion–could Ella just want a cell phone of her own? But Ella makes clear that what she really wants is her family back. Will they all agree that it’s time to make some changes?




“Being tethered to our screens 24/7 is of huge societal concern to children, families and teachers. It seems insolvable but it isn’t! In an inspired and inspiring example of ‘taking on challenges,’ Laura Pedersen’s Unplugged shows how a child comes up with a solution that gives her and her family what our studies show they want most: time to be together and have fun.”

-Ellen Galinsky, President, Families and Work Institute, and author of Mind in the Making: The Seven Essential Life Skills That Every Child Needs
