Book of the Week: Robots

November 9, 2010

This week I’m featuring The Robot Book by Heather Brown. I think of it as a really good-looking version of a book-with-moving-parts. We just got this and I’ve decided to save it for a Christmas gift for Oscar. I think he’ll love it! There are lots of 3-D pieces to rotate, push and pull. Windows to look through and flaps to lift.

Such a neat (and sturdy) book to hold in your hands. I’m afraid my photos don’t do it justice.

ok, so I’ve been slightly obsessed with robots. I have a pinboard all about it here:

and this little obsession means that my high school art students will be drawing and making robots very soon. :)

What a cute book! My Dad designs robots, so my kids love anything that has to do with robots.

I feel like I need to bookmark your children’s books posts so that I have tried-and-true recommendations for when my babe is older. I would’ve loved this book as a kid–yep, the moving parts enchant.

Love the illustration! It looks like the whole book (including moving parts) is a board book. Is this the case? i.e. are the moving parts really sturdy? My 2.5 yo loves books and loves books with things that move, but he tends to pull to hard on pop-up books made of regular cardboard (and so they rip, naturally). Just wondering if this is a gift for this Xmas, or perhaps something for later.
