This robot has two eyes, two arms, and two legs, but what really makes him tick? Inside "The Robot Book," Heather Brown answers that question within an interactive story that features actual working--and moving--parts. Gears and cogs are mounted on each illustration to keep little fingers and imaginations engaged.
While the junior engineer is tinkering away, parents will also be charmed by the story's warm text, which reveals the true secret behind what makes our robot tick. Here's a little hint: It isn't a gear, or bolt, or some other mechanical part, it's what's in his heart that counts the most. Perfect for year-round gift-giving, the book will be packaged inside a protective poly-bag."

"A robot is made of so many parts," begins this modest board book with movable components. Each spread focuses on a specific feature of a humble red robot that looks very DIY. The robot has "one mouth" and "a pair of eyes," all fashioned from cardboard gears that rotate, and two forklike arms, one of which swings in a circle. But "a robot is more than just a pile of parts," Brown writes, and a final spread reveals a gently tarnished blue heart, with rotating cogs like the inside of a mechanical clock. It's an elegantly simple design with care paid to every detail. Ages 3–up. (Oct.)
