I Need a Children’s Picture Book to Understand This

Please would somebody write a children’s picture book for me that explains the ins and outs of internet technology? Yes, it will be a long book, but that is what I need, because I’m not a techno-geek, a fact that frustrates me. I need a miracle to understand how to link from Amazon, Google, Goodreads, etc to my site. That’s because my brain can’t seem to wrap itself around these written explanations. When I try to do what they explain, confusion hits my head.

If I was Captain Kirk, I’d constantly have to contact Scotty whose expertise could fix my broken “system.” Or maybe I’d need Spock, the super-analytical guy whose guesses are more sure than my noblest attempts to connect these strange threads.

Some people in my life thrive on research. I do not. Though I find it useful at times, the knowledge overload can weigh me down.

I am like a child when it comes to technology. Would someone please paint me a picture book explaining step by step how all this strange computer stuff works? I realize it will soon go out of date before I can put it into practice, but a simple children’s picture book would be so much more fun to read than some technical manual I can’t understand.

Would someone write a children’s picture book for me,

The one who’s not great with technology,

explaining what to do with all these links?

And don’t call me a “dummy” because that stinks,


For I’m a healer, not a techno-geek.

Come to me if healing is what you seek.

I’ll lead you straight to Jesus. He’s the key

To getting unstuck from the insecurity


I feel while trying to untangle that big web,

The Internet sea that tends to flow and ebb.

It’s yoke is heavy and it’s burden isn’t light.

So give a book in which I can delight!


For creating links involves technology

That has little to do with theology.

Though it seems to need a doctoral degree,

Because to me it lacks simplicity.


We all have different gifts and talents, and marketing books can be hard.

That said, I wonder how many adults like me would appreciate a simple book on internet jargon, how to make websites, etc that doesn’t take a PhD to understand?

C.R. Flamingbush grew up in Wheaton, Illinois and graduated from Georgetown University with a degree in German and linguistics. After working seven years for the Department of Defense (an easy job), she took on the most difficult challenge in the world: a lifetime career of raising four children. Along the way she developed a passion for writing Christian superhero fantasy. She enjoys humor because it's Biblical (see the second psalm) and she loves to make people laugh - whether through her writings, her art, or just by being herself. Writing fantasy is her way of poking fun at human foibles and all the ridiculous ideas that so easily beset the human race, while at the same time honoring God in every way she can. Flamingbush has been a member of Faithwriters since 2010, and several of her winning contest entries have been published by Fresh Air Press. She likes Fan Story and has been a Narnia fan since the age of ten. In terms of influence, she aspires to be the next C.S. Lewis but has quite a ways to go in that regard. Speed of Sight, a Superhero Adventure, is her first novel. A sequel is in the works.
