Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carol Mitchell
Simple drawings in bright primary colors are the highlight of this delightful book about robots. The basic premise of the book, communicated in very simple yet lively language, is to point out all of the surprising places in which we find robots in our everyday lives. Young readers will find a lot to see on each page of the book, and caregivers can use this as a way to introduce new vocabulary as they discuss the images of spaceships, planets, coral reefs and more. Children may be able to read the book two or three times and still find something new in the illustrations. In addition to displaying existing robots such as toys and vacuum cleaners, the book shows humanoid robots and robot dogs, thus encouraging the reader to imagine future uses for robots. Reviewer: Carol Mitchell; Ages 3 to 5.

    I gave this book to my four-year-old son today.  I have to revie

    I gave this book to my four-year-old son today.  I have to review it now because he wants it back so we can read it tonight.  It's just that good. 
    The text is simple, with an unforced rhyming scheme, so reading the book is a pleasure.  Also, although the text was simple and straightforward, even I learned something about robots.
    And then there is the illustration.  The text may be simple and straightforward, but the artwork is not.  Manic would be a fair description, but manic in a good way.  Manic as in "it explodes off of the pages" way.  The two-page spreads have five to twelve words -- the rest is given over to the illustrations.  From corner to corner.  And cover to cover.
