I saw Robot Zot! by Jon Scieszka and David Shannon sitting on the New Books shelf at the library, so I decided to check it out. I'm always looking for age-appropriate robot books for my 5-year old son who loves Transformers. Robot Zot! is definitely written with the 5-year old boy in mind.
I must say it's not the type of book I normally would pick out. It's full of busy illustrations, and the words don't flow in the way most picture books we read do. I'm not used to reading pages like:
"Take that!" beeps Zot. "And that!" boops Zot. "And that!" bleeps Zot. Zot defeats them. Every One. "Affirmative."But it's perfect for my son. He really enjoyed it. He thought it was funny and asked me to read it again the next day. And I will admit the story itself is cute. It's just requiring me to learn how to read a very different type of book. I'm looking forward to the day when C can read these books on his own!
This review was written based on a copy of Robot Zot! that I borrowed from the library.
