This book is for primary aged students. This is a simple plot about a boy who finds a robot and a robot who doesn't understand how a boy can sleep, unlike robots! This is a funny story that would be very entertaining for young children, perhaps K-2.

Brief, boldly illustrated story with a heartwarming message: if we try to help others, even if our efforts don't hit the mark, things will be all right. ( )

Well, that was incredibly innocuous. Well, except for the kidnapping in the middle that no one seemed to care about very much. Child snatching robot? Haha! NBD! ( )

This is a cute book about two friends. The boy tries to take care of bot when his switch is off, taking care of him the way he'd want to be take care of. Then the boy falls asleep. The bot wakes up and sees the boy asleep and takes him to his house to be taken care of the way he'd ant to )oil change, tighten bolts, etc.). In the end they are happy to be friends. I think this is a good way to show everyone is different and we may have different cultures without directly saying that. Ages 5-10. ( )
