Danny’s Computer is a fun and enjoyable children’s book written by Uncle Amos. Danny spent almost all of his time playing on his computer until one day it needed to go to the shop for repair. Danny was very discouraged and wondered what he would do with his free time now that he would be without the computer for about a week. His mother encourages Danny to draw and read. He spends some time drawing anything he could think of and enjoyed this new hobby. One day, some of his neighbors came over and asked him to go out with them. This was the beginning of a fun-filled adventure, as he learned how to play with other children, play board games, enjoy the outdoors, etc. When Danny is told that his computer had been repaired and he could go pick it up, he is undecided about the computer as he had found so many other fun things to do.
Uncle Amos engages young readers, making this a wonderful book to enjoy. The illustrations are done beautifully and the text is well written. This book captivates a young audience and would be a fun read for a parent and child, or a story time at a local library, or school. This would be a good book for a child that is only focused on one particular thing in their life and an excellent way to help them to open their mind to the additional possibility of fun and engaging things they could enjoy doing with others.
