Build Your Own Robots by Rob Ives - OPTIONAL

Ives, Rob Build Your Own Robots32 pages.  NON-FICTION. Hungry Tomato (Lerner), 2018. $26. Content: G.  

Nine different robots with instructions are included in this book.  Each robot has 2-3 pages of explanation with a list of tools and supplies.  Robots can be done in 6-18 steps depending on the complexity of the robot.  Supplies aren’t really things I could find around my house, but maybe in a makerspace station there would be these types of items: pager electric motors, button batteries, electric motor, or a battery holder.  The instructions are illustrated and appear simple and easy to follow.  There is a glossary at the end to help explain certain terms.
