Overview: The Little Robot is curious to see what goes on at the zoo after it closes. He is surprised to learn that the zoo animals are all robots just like him.
A sweet story of curiosity and and self discovery. Perfect for bedtime reading. Humorous and interesting, this book is delightfully told and beautifully illustrated.
Mary’s Review: What a delightful and imaginative story written in poetry form about a little boy’s visit to the zoo where all the animals are robots. Each shows that each animal has it’s own special diet, that they are loved and cared for, love back, have their own sense of humor and personality. The book takes the children on a wonderful adventure allowing them to use their imaginations in picturing a zoo full of robot animals. What a small surprise to find out the little boy is a robot as well.
The illustrations are just as imaginative, adorable and colorful.
I feel this book teaches children that even though we are all unique in our own way we can live still together as one in peace and harmony.
I recommend this book for ages 4-8.
