Not only is The Trouble With Sisters and Robots a cute story, but it could be used as a teaching tool for a number of concepts. The story has a clear beginning, middle, and end, and could be used to teach or reinforce questioning, inferences, visualizations, connections, predictions, and moral of the story. Children will love the beautiful illustrations and have fun relating to the "pesky sibling," all while learning a valuable lesson.

My 4 year old loves this book. This book is good for any child who has a younger sibling and needs a reminder why it's good to have them around. The art work is great and colorful.

The author crafts a story to illustrate how stopping to listen to what others might have to say is the central theme behind this childrens story of a robot run amok. While it's true to say this it's style and delivery are that of a first-time writer, don't mistake this for it's liveliness of characters and illustrations. The book is brief but its moral is clear enough to understand, leaving the reader with a simple reminder to keep an open ear for what others might have to share.

The book titled Trouble with Sisters and Robots has quickly become my two kids, nine and seven, favorite bedtime reading material. The book is beautifully illustrated and very well written with a quality moral undertone that is not found in many children's books today. My nine year old was able to easily read it and my seven year old, who shares the name of the troublesome sister, never tires of the story. This book is already enjoying its second week of consecutive nightly readings with no possible end in sight and if it were a less engaging story I would have moved them on long ago. I look forward to finding more books written and illustrated by this talented author and I highly recommend it for your kid's reading pleasure.
