The Robot Book Review

I was lucky enough to review a board book called The Robot Book By Heather Brown.
This book is perfect for preschool age. I think books that are fabric or plastic bathtub books are ideal for babies. They tend to want to eat and yank at pages.

This book is described on Amazon as: 

This robot has two eyes, two arms, and two legs, but what really makes him tick? Inside The Robot Book, Heather Brown answers that question within an interactive story that features actual working--and moving--parts. Gears and cogs are mounted on each illustration to keep little fingers and imaginations engaged.

We took this book on a small road trip. It has small words. The reading level was below the 7 year old. I thought it was great having him read to the 4 year old though. They both loved the moving parts.

Product Details:
  • Cost: $16.99 for the book. $2.99 for the Kindle version.
  • Reading Level: Ages 3 and up
  • Hardcover with 12 pages
  • Publisher: Accord Publishing, a division of Andrews McMeel; Brdbk edition (October 26, 2010)
