WHAT ABOUT: DIGITAL TECH
An Illustrated Q&A Book for Kids
By: Romain Gallissot and Baptiste Massa
Illustrated by: Pascal Lemaître
Published: October 17, 2023
This What About series for kids teaches about a specific topic in a way that is fun for kids to learn while answering questions kids want to know with silly illustrations.
From the first computer to what digital technology will look like in the future and everything in between, over 30 questions are asked and answered in a way that kids will understand. Even as an adult, it is hard to remember when I didn’t have a cell phone. I had my first one in college in the 90s for emergencies only. So, a child might want to know “How did my grandparents live without cell phones?” This section explains how people communicated before cell phones using landline telephones, answering machines, or even using a phone booth while out and about.
“Will there ever be a robot that can clean my room?” Only if it will clean the whole house too, right? Robots have been programmed to do all kinds of different jobs in factories, and in hospitals, and some can do household chores, but usually only the most basic of tasks. I don’t see a robot folding and putting away my laundry anytime soon.
Have you ever wondered who created the emoji? It all began in Japan on cell phones in the late 1990s until Apple and Android added them to their keyboards. In the beginning, there were only 80 different emojis, but now there are over 3,000. 🧐🤯
Every question is answered with a full-page spread of short paragraphs and detailed illustrations that are both comical and serious. Colored fonts separate the various paragraphs and categorize the learning. Experts have validated the information so it is the most accurate and up-to-date.
From self-driving cars to even smarter computers, there is a lot to imagine when it comes to the future of digital technology. Our brains haven’t even thought of everything yet. But, if you have a kid who is curious about technology or is interested in learning more or maybe even having a career in technology, this book can answer a lot of their burning questions.
