Themes: Creativity/ Family stories/ Robots/ Tolerance
Sam absolutely knows there are robots out there in space so why doesn’t his family understand him. Because they know they are always right, that’s why! However, after Sam has built himself his own robot who proves to be an understanding companion, the tables are turned. This is one of those amazing books where you don’t really have to read the words for the story to be absolutely clear to the children with whom you are sharing it. My copy now has a totally ‘well-used’ look due to small fingers (both female and male) that have explored the pictures in depth for many minutes at a time.
Preschool up/ Age 4 up (older children will enjoy this too)
