Everyone loves the classic book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and its sequels like If You Give a Moose a Muffin and If You Give a Pig a Pancake. It’s all about how when you do something, there are consequences, whether planned or otherwise. It turns out that if you give a kid an iPad, it’s no different.
If you give a kid an iPad… then she’ll need a fancy case to protect it.
Then she’ll need an app to play.
After that, she’ll want to sing a song.
Then she’ll need a drink…
When she spills the drink on the iPad, she’ll cry.
Then you’ll need to get a towel to help clean it up.
When she sees the towel, she’ll insist that she can do it herself.
Then it’ll get on the floor.
After that, you’ll need to get out the Spot Bot to clean the carpet.
She’ll hear the Spot Bot and then run off to avoid the noise.
She’ll take the iPad with her.
She’ll fall asleep in her room with the game on.
The iPad battery will run down.
You’ll gently slip away with the iPad to charge it
After she wakes up from her nap, she’ll run out into the living room with great enthusiasm.
Then she’ll see the iPad and want to play an app.
