Children's LiteratureThis is a dual-level picture book that works well on both levels. A simple line of text adorns each page, "Robots hover near the stars/hundreds whirring over Mars." In addition, small fact boxes elaborate on the uses and potential future uses of each kind of robot. For, "Robots inch along the wall," we are also told of inchworm bots that can move on suction cup feet to take pictures of the undersides of bridges. For, "Robots swim and flick their tails," we are informed of future robo-fish that scientists hope to use to count fish populations. The airbrushed acrylic and collage illustrations are wonderful, with bright colors and crisp edges. Perfect for very young children who show an interest in robots and a nice starting point for older children interested in the subject. 2004, G.P. Putnam's Sons, Ages 4 to 8.
