This is a science fiction book about a friendship that is formed between a robot and a boy. This book is a great book for the science fiction genre because it is not scary like most science fiction books can be. The concept of friendship in this book would make it a great read aloud for the class. The robot and the boy both learned from each other and even know they were very different they learned more about each other and became friends.

Science fiction story the students will come up with their own bot and describe the bots features. They will write them down and then draw their picture to go along with their description. ( )

Boy and Bot is about a friendship built between a boy and a robot and shows how difficult it is to take care of each other to make sure they are both doing ok. The illustrations are great, appropriate for younger children. ( )

Very short, but informational. It made me realize how books without words can be effective at conveying a message. Very appropriate for very young students who can't read yet as well. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375867562, Hardcover)

One day, a boy and a robot meet in the woods. They play. They have fun.

But when Bot gets switched off, Boy thinks he's sick. The usual remedies—applesauce, reading a story—don't help, so Boy tucks the sick Bot in, then falls asleep.

Bot is worried when he powers on and finds his friend powered off. He takes Boy home with him and tries all his remedies: oil, reading an instruction manual. Nothing revives the malfunctioning Boy! Can the Inventor help fix him?

Using the perfect blend of sweetness and humor, this story of an adorable duo will win the hearts of the very youngest readers.
