A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this book.

Educational Value

Readers will learn about the parts of a robot.

Positive Messages

Things are more than the sum of their parts. It's what's inside that counts.

Positive Role Models & Representations

The robot is portrayed as a machine that has more value and substance than his or her elements, because he or she has a heart.

Violence & Scariness

What parents need to know

With tactile gears and cogs to turn on every page, the hardcover version of The Robot Book is much more interactive for little ones than the board book or Kindle, but all versions offer bright watercolor images and simple words that will get kids thinking.
