Here are some fun books about robots! From fun stories to books full the facts, there is something for everyone!
Can You Find my Robot's Arm? Chihiro Takeuchi

is a very cute book about a robot who lost its arm, and the reader helps to find it. The words are simple and repetitive which toddlers love. The illustrations are beautiful, made of silhouettes in a decoupage style. Although it is geared towards younger children, my 5-year-old still enjoys it!

The Wild Robot Kathy Willis

was our very first read-aloud chapter book, and everyone loved it, including my 5-year-old and dad (he is the hardest to please!). It is a heart-warming book, full of action about becoming wild and forging friendships in spite of differences. It also contains a great message about nature, wildlife and life itself.

Robots, Robots Everywhere! Sue Fliess

is a Little Golden Book, full of color and fun robots and great for preschoolers! Robots can be seen doing different jobs and they also display human qualities, such as physical features and emotions. A good starting book to talk about robots and automation.

It can feel a bit long for younger children but is easy to break down int several readings.

Boy and Bot is a very sweet story. One day, a boy and a robot meet in the woods. They play but suddenly the robot turns off. Boy tries very hard to make Bot better.
