Editorial Reviews

“I am a huge fan of Kim Maslin’s cyber safety stories! The Little Possum Who Looked Up is another fabulous title to add to my technology-themed children’s book list. This story is very relatable for kids and adults alike, as it addresses monitoring screen time and learning to be present by spending quality time with the people you love. The rhythmic rhyme of the words makes this story flow beautifully!” – Julie Smith, The Techie Teacher

“We are living in a technological world that allows us to connect, learn, and be entertained in unprecedented ways. This beautiful children’s book, Pebbles the Possum gently reminds us that our use of technology needs to be balanced and not displace face-to-face connection, communication, relationships, and experiences. The Little Possum Who Looked Up provides us all with an opportunity to reflect on our use of technology and the wonderful experiences we can share together online and offline.” – Kayelene Kerr – Cyber Safety and Digital Wellness Specialist, WA Child Safety Services
