Magnus and the Grandma's Mobile

Dad loves his mobile phone. So does mom. Their mobiles can navigate, watch movies, and read the news. They use them all the time. And, when I ask them about things, they don’t listen.

Grandma’s mobile isn’t as good. But she says that she has me to navigate and entertain her. She says it’s more fun to chat than to stare at a screen.

One day grandma gets a new mobile that is even more cutting-edge than mom’s and dad’s. Grandma is suddenly engrossed by her new mobile.
