Ellie Jaymes grows up in a world where parks are overgrown and forgotten, and texting is talking. Although Ellie attends school, all learning take place on devices with almost no interaction between students and teachers. She and her classmates, Jax, Benny, Bailey, and Stella, have no idea that their world is about to change. When the power goes out and devices shut off, what will the class and their teacher, Mr. Tweet, do?

Opinion: 

The Day the Swing Stopped is a wonderful book of poetry, appropriate for ages 8-10. Lindsay Achtman has created a believable book about what could happen to kids in the future. It made me ask questions like: "Could this happen to the current generation?" and "What can I do to keep this from happening?" The pictures complement the storyline perfectly. Just beware: after reading this book, you may have to go to the park.
