This series is perfect for emerging readers who are beginning to exercise wider reading, research and cross-referencing skills. Robots is an interactive adventure unveiling the fascinating world of robotics and all it has to offer the 21st century. How do robots work? What jobs can Robots do? Can robots work in space? And: Are humans and robots related? -are only a few of the questions young readers can explore in this high-interest and fast paced book chock-full of timely scientific and technological information.

Reviews

NTSA RecommendsIt is a fun book, great for both the techno-kid who wants a robot as a companion or for the curious one who wonders what a robot is. . . . Four colored buttons found on the pages direct the reader to look for innovations for the future in science, history, or technology. These present new ideas to the reader. There are different ways to use this book. It is beautifully illustrated and a pleasure to simply read for enjoyment, or to use for research at the elementary school level.
