The Bot That Scott Built by Kim Norman


The Bot That Scott Built by Kim Norman

When Scott builds a bot, a bippity-bot, sparks fly - and his entire classroom goes-wild. Before long, fiery ants and carnivorous plants, a freaky frog, a big-bellied boa and an exploding 'volcano' have wreaked total havoc. Can Scott's bot, which started it all, manage the mess? Cheers for the handy hero! A cumulative story with fun that grows and grows and GROWS.


Author Kim Norman (This Old Van; Ten on the Sled; Puddle Pug) doesn't miss a beat with her jaunty rhyme as frogs leap from the bathtub bog, the classroom boa escapes, a Tesla coil sparks... and Scott's bot saves the day. . . . Italian illustrator Agnese Baruzzi creates an inviting, spacious and colorful classroom with stylish, textured artwork and a diverse cast of characters, including the brown-skinned robot inventor Scott. Subtly embedded photos of actual objects, such as light fixtures, drapes and plant leaves--and many other funny, delicious details--will have readers lingering over every page. . . . A blue-ribbon read-aloud for Science Day or any day. Shelf Awareness
