I’m (Almost) Never Bored

Milbourne, Anna

A wonderful story about a BORED little girl, deprived of screen time, who learns to have fun with her imagination

‘I’m BORED!’ wails a little girl after her screen time is cut short. ‘That’s great!’ her dad says with a grin. ‘Being bored comes right before having a Really Good Idea.’

After an initial protest, the little girl dives into her imagination, and takes the reader with her on a whirlwind ride of pure fun. A cardboard box becomes a magical train, the washing machine inspires an imaginary trip into space, a scribbly doodle becomes a hungry spaghetti monster, and ants in the garden lead her into an escapade in the Funny Bug Circus.

In a world where children can find entertainment at the touch of a button, it’s ever-more important that they have time to be bored – because that’s where they have the space to come up with their own Really Good Ideas.
