The Robot and the Bluebird by David Lucas

Lucas, David The Robot and the Bluebird. Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2007. $16.95. PICTURE BOOK. A robot who is sure that his heart is broken, finds purpose in helping a bird who is late starting on its trip to the south. I actually didn’t expect to be so touched by this little book, but it reminds me of the Giving Tree. Sweet, without being sickly! EL – ADVISABLE. Cindy, Library-Teacher

In what universe is The Giving Tree not sickening?
