Parker, Jake Little Bot and Sparrow PICTURE BOOK Roaring Brook Press, 2016. $17.99 Content: G.
A little robot is no longer needed and is thrown out with the garbage. When he is visited by some birds, one of the birds becomes his friend. Together the bird and the bot explore and the bird teaches the little robot about nature and beautiful things. When winter comes the bird has to leave, but bot is happy in the new world that they explored together.
The robot in this book is adorable. I love the illustrations and the sweet friendship that the two share. It has a good message about learning from the world around us.
