A fantastic read! A very informative and interesting book that is sure to capture a child's attention. The book discusses many different types of robots, their purpose, and their characteristics. I felt like I actually learned something from this book, and I expect a child would feel the same way. It was written in a manner to which a child could relate and understand. The words that a child may not know were defined right on the page. The pictures and backrounds in the book also made it cool to look at, especially to a child. A great science related book for older children, I would definitely reccomend it. Warning: after reading this book your child may be obssessed with robots and beg you to buy one. All I kept thinking while I was reading it was: Oh! I want that! I want one! Where can I buy it?? It also includes fun robot related projects for children. ( )

Robots have left the lab and are on the move, discovering sunken treasure, traveling deep into space, and venturing inside raging infernos. Read about the real-life robots that are mowing our lawns, spying on us, saving lives, and doing what humans cannot- dealing with deadly poisons and explosive devices! But that's not all. You'll learn about what might be in store with advances in artificial intelligence, robots that are learning to mimic human emotions, and even half-human, half-robot cyborgs. Could a robot rebellion occur in the future? Will nanorobots be so small that a thousand of them could hide behind a pinhead? From giant car-crushing machines to the latest microbots working inside the human body, this is the complete guide to the exciting world of robotics.… (more)
