Happy International Literacy Day, everyone! Our pick today is Power Down, Little Robot, written by Anna Staniszewski and illustrated by Tim Zeltner. This is a fun spin on the typical bedtime book using robots as the main theme.
Mom Unit says that it’s time for Little Robot to power down, but his energy levels are still in the yellow, so he initiates his stalling program: “One more can of oil?” “Read me a manual?” Fortunately, Mom Unit knows how to get him into his sleep module so that he can initiate his dream sequence.
This was a really cute bedtime book! The text really runs with the robot theme, which makes it fun for kids and highly amusing to any parent or caregiver who has been through the bedtime “stalling program.” The length was fine for Baby Bookworm, and the pictures are charming. This would be great for any little one, but especially for the one who loves anything robot. Baby Bookworm approved!
