Little Bot and Sparrow by Jake Parker

When Little Bot is thrown out with the garbage, he meets his first true friend, a bird named Sparrow, who takes him under her wing. Sparrow teaches Little Bot about the perils of flying, her wild world, and the importance of dreaming. As winter arrives, Sparrow must leave and fly south, and they share a tearful good bye. Little Bot revisits where he and Sparrow shared happy memories, and that night, for the first time, he dreams of him and Sparrow taking flight together. Jake Parker's first self-authored picture book captures the sweet friendship of The Adventures of Beekle, the sweeping art of The Curious Garden, and lasting feel of What Do You Do with an Idea?


Parker tells his story with humor and tenderness . . . Dreaming keeps memories alive for a very special robot in this sweet, quiet tale. Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Parker chronicles the relationship between quirky master and student with velvety textures and idyllic settings that make the incongruous robot even more adorable . . . The discussions this story will spark should prove as rewarding as the happiest of endings. Publishers Weekly, starred review
