While alphabet books can be lots of fun for an illustrator, they may be ho-hum for readers -- but not this one! Robots plus noisy onomatopoeia make for lots of participatory fun. There’s even a visual story threaded through. As the robots construct an alphabet out of steel and girders, they use tools that are LOUD, and the sounds on each page demonstrate the sound of the letter being constructed. ABCDE? That’s Ahoogah, Beep Boop, Clang Clink Crash Clank, Drip Drop, Eek! There's lots of opportunity for interactive reading as kids gleefully chime in with the sounds.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
