Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Have you ever wondered where the word robot originated? The book that comes with this kit will provide the answer and also introduce the world of robots. There are the real ones that work in factories and dangerous places such ad the ocean depths, and undertake space exploration and those that we have seen in movies and TV that are more fantasy than fact. There is great potential for robots to take over some of the everyday tasks in our homes such as automatically cleaning a swimming pool, or robo pets that do not need to be walked or fed, lawn mowers that can take care of that chore on your schedule and devices that can explore more dangerous places on earth such as the icy regions of the Arctic and Antarctic and other really tough terrain. After reading all about these machines, kids are challenged to open an envelope with instructions to build a robot rover from the materials provided in the kit. There is a warning that the kit is not suitable for children under three and the kit is recommended for those eight and up. Since this is probably an activity that will be undertaken jointly with a parent, kids as young as five may also have fun taking part in the experiment. They certainly will have fun with the completed product. 202, Silver Dolphin Books, Ages 8 up.
