From the Publisher
“The activities included invite readers into the text with simple and clearly explained instructions accompanied by photos of each step. Youngsters can create their own secret storage robot and make their own model robot from easy-to-find materials. ” —Children's Literature
Children's Literature
The short chapters and large text of this informative volume about robots is one in a series by "Kingfisher Young Knowledge." Young researchers and scientists can investigate the world of robots here. Gifford includes information revealing what a robot is, how robots work on earth and in space, spy robots, and robot doctors. The colorful photographs show robotic details and are nicely balanced with large text and white space. Imaginations will soar when readers discover that robot doctors can work for hours without getting tired or making mistakes. Robot spies can hide in places where humans cannot and robot guard dogs can check your house, take pictures and send them to the homeowners' cell phones without a need for feeding. Difficult vocabulary is clearly defined at the bottom of the page on a colorful border. The activities included invite readers into the text with simple and clearly explained instructions accompanied by photos of each step. Youngsters can create their own secret storage robot and make their own model robot from easy-to-find materials. An index is also included. This is an excellent reference for home, school and classroom bookshelves. 2003, Kingfisher/Houghton Mifflin Co, Ages 8 to 12.
