Summary
A high-tech robot boy enjoys a day of low-tech fun on the farm.

Doug and his parents are off to visit the grandbots. But when their journey is interrupted by some sheep in the road, Doug goes from downloading information about farm animals to actually interacting with them!

Doug gets to learn by doing --he herds sheep, milks a cow, gathers eggs, and then uses good old-fashioned "horse sense" to get their car back on the road.

Doug Unplugs on the Farm is a lively celebration of farm life and the value of hands-on learning that will encourage kids to go screen-free and explore the real world! A terrific companion to Dan Yaccarino's first book of low-tech learning, Doug Unplugged .

Praise for Dan Yaccarino's Doug Unplugged:

"Without preaching, [Yaccarino] comments smartly on children's screen time and the necessity of outdoor play and exploration." -- Publishers Weekly

"Yaccarino is especially good at slipping in the small, nourishing details that are savored upon repeated readings. . . . It's a sweet tale and true to the anti-technology, analog strain that runs through much of Yaccarino's work." -- The New York Times Book Review
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Doug and his robot parents return, this time on their way to visit the grandbots until their car is forced into a ditch by a flock of errant sheep. Plugged in Doug, who is learning online during the drive, unplugs to help a distressed farm girl contain the sheep. He also helps with her other chores milking cows, gathering eggs, and watering the stinky pigs, giving actual experience to his vicarious online ones, while his parents try to figure out the car problem. But it is Doug who saves the day when he realizes that a horse that can pull a plow can also rescue their car from the ditch. It does, and they are on the way to the grandbots. The illustrations, simple shapings in pure, rich colors, were created with brush-and-ink and Adobe Photoshop. They successfully blend the traditional farm scenes with the more futuristic robots, proving that there is room on the farm for a hardworking, curious robot boy. A welcome addition to a new series.--Edmundson, Martha Copyright 2014 Booklist"
