I'm (Almost) Never Bored


Average rating

4 out 5

16 reviews

""I'm BORED!"" wails a little girl after her screen time is cut short. ""That's great!"" her dad says with a grin. ""Being bored comes right before having a Really Good Idea."" After an initial protest, the little girl dives into her imagination, and takes the reader with her on a whirlwind ride of pure fun. A cardboard box becomes a magical train, the washing machine inspires an imaginary trip into space, a scribbly doodle becomes a hungry spaghetti monster, and ants in the garden lead her into an escapade in the Funny Bug Circus. In a world where children can find entertainment at the touch of a button, it's ever-more important that they have time to be bored - because that's where they have the space to come up with their own Really Good Ideas.

It’s funny how it’s got holes in the pages. I liked the girl’s imagination especially the part with the washing machine.

I learnt that when you're bored there's other things to do

The books helps you to think of ideas when you may be bored! The main person is pretty much the only character but I like her mum as she is busy working and I would definitely recommend to read this, the more people thinking of ideas means we shouldn’t be bored

An inspiring story about how being bored isn’t that bad after all. I read it to my little sister and we both loved it.
