Review: The Wild Robot

The Wild Robot
The Wild Robot by Peter Brown
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In The Wild Robot, Peter Brown has given us an inventive meditation on observing nature, how to survive in the unexpected wilderness, the essence of what makes a family, and how to be a friend. And it’s all wrapped up in an adventure story that the grades 3-6 set can thoroughly enjoy. Beautiful and exciting, with a unique ending that will leave readers something to think about.

This almost makes the give to your favorite kids bookshelf but doesn’t, only because it starts with a nearly-no-survivors cargo ship capsizing, and my favorite kid (who otherwise would have loved this) has a parent who works on cargo ships!
