Boy + Bot

Boy + Bot

My rating: ★★★★

ISBN: 9780375867569
Publisher: Knopf Books
Date of publication: April 10, 2012

Themes: robot, friendship, selflessness, misunderstanding

One day, a boy meets a robot. They quickly become friends and have lots of fun. But when the robot's switch is accidentally hit, the boy doesn't know what to do to fix it. Is he sick? Does he need some applesauce? Well, in the middle of the night when the robot's switch gets hit back on, he's now wondering what's wrong with the boy. Perhaps he needs a new battery?

It's adorable. It's about robots. What else could you want in life? Of particular value: it's not long at all. Short, easy to read, but with a good story. Also, when you read it, you can practice your robot voice. I'm looking forward to using it in storytime this week when talking all about friends. It would also be fun to read at home before creating your own robot friend. Either way, I recommend it for sure.
