Reading Rockets' 'Robots' Reading Adventure Pack


When packing for this reading adventure about robots we suggest you include Robot Dreams by Sara Varon and Robot (Eyewitness Books) by Roger Bridgman. Robot Dreams is a simple, endearing story of friendship and loss told through a wordless graphic novel. Robot offers a detailed, full-color guide to the fascinating world of machines that sense, think and act, including the history of artificial intelligence and robots at work.

Reading Rockets carefully chose these titles because they are widely available in libraries and appealing to young readers.
