In Granny And Danny Aren’t Bored Anymore by Emma Taylor, after spending some time under lockdown due to the coronavirus, Danny is nearly bored to tears. His mother suggests that he should do his homework, play with his sister, or play a board game. Danny has already done all of those things and is still bored. Granny Annie calls and complains to Danny’s mother that she is bored, too. She has already cleaned her house, knitted, and has nothing left to do. Danny’s mother gives him the phone, hoping that Granny and Danny will find a way to make the best of the situation and work through their boredom. Will they find something to do so neither of them is bored? How will the conversation change the way they live during lockdown? Will social distancing cause the family to drift apart or will they find a way to visit and have fun in spite of everything going on in the outside world?

Granny And Danny Aren’t Bored Anymore by Emma Taylor is a wonderful story that displays how hard the lockdown and social distancing can be on adults and children. The characters are interesting and relatable as they discuss the way things have changed and how hard it is to be stuck at home. I love how Taylor identifies how difficult these times are for all ages rather than singling out a specific age group. The illustrations are bright and enlightening as they show what is happening in the story through pictures. I recommend Granny And Danny Aren’t Bored Anymore to anyone with children who need new ideas about how to deter boredom and find some “new normal” ways to cope.
