LEGACY Of Logan & Lilly

It is hard to believe that the Adventures of Logan and Lilly series will be coming out this October. The road to this story has been a long road. I cant wait to see what the illustrator has in mind for the characters. Many of you don’t know the book is about our son Logan and his real-life doll Lilly. Since he was a little guy, he has had Lilly, and the two of them do just about everything together. We have pictures of them going to the store, playing in mud puddles, and simply in his room with only his imagination. It is fantastic to see him be so attached to a doll and not fear what others will think. I know he is only five now, and that might change in the future, but if we continue to teach him that it is okay, then when the day comes when someone says something, he will hold his own. Having a doll, being a boy does not make you weak, in my opinion. I know others will not share my views; this doll represents a bonded friendship that continues to withstand time. Someday, I know I will pull Lilly out and pass her on to one of his children, but the fact that they have their book means much more. It means that the legacy of Logan and Lilly will live on forever.

Books Vs. Screens

Every time a child opens a book, it is a chance for them to go on a brand new ADVENTURE! Books are so important for a child’s development. It not only allows them to escape to mystical places, meet new people, but it also teaches them about life. Many authors will write about what is going on currently in the world or a particular topic. For example, “The Adventures of Logan & Lilly” is about a seven-year-old boy named Logan and his doll Lilly. With books, a child can push past stereotypes and focus on what makes them smile. Books offer children the advantages to escape and allows them the freedom to express who they are.

Studies are now finding more benefits to children reading vs. having screen time. In one study done by the “Reading & Literacy Discovery Center of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital,” scientists discover what the brain looks like when children read vs. playing on tablets or tv. Scientists have proven with a scan that the child who reads shows growth “in organized white matter in the language and literacy.” This brain area will help a child when they become school age and aid in supporting their learning.

With this new development, I will challenge my children to put the screens down and grab a book. How about you?

I love this blog post by, Erica of What We Do All Day. She shares some great books that can help parents to learn to unplug their children and get them interested in reading. It is a great read.
