One day, a boy and a robot meet in the woods. They play. They have fun.

But when Bot gets switched off, Boy thinks he's sick. The usual remedies—applesauce, reading a story—don't help, so Boy tucks the sick Bot in, then falls asleep.

Bot is worried when he powers on and finds his friend powered off. He takes Boy home with him and tries all his remedies: oil, reading an instruction manual. Nothing revives the malfunctioning Boy! Can the Inventor help fix him?

Using the perfect blend of sweetness and humor, this story of an adorable duo will win the hearts of the very youngest readers.

This is a wonderful children's story that also amuses parents.  The young boy and the robot are both believable characters whose humanity is appealing.  Some words like "affirmative" will expand the young reader's vocabulary.  I would recommend this book for all children and the parents who read books to their children.

I recently read this book to a preschool class of both boys and girls, and they were captivated. This is a tale of an unlikely friendship -- boy and bot -- and how they both care for each other in their own way. The boy feeds the bot applesauce; the bot feed the boy oil. The boy reads the bot a story book; bot reads the boy an instruction manual. This book's brief text and bright illustrations are perfect for story times or reading at home over and over again.
