Drones and Flying Robots by Mary Lindeen -OPTIONAL

Lindeen, Mary Drones and Flying Robots, 32 pages.  NON-FICTION. Lerner, 2018.  $20.

This book contains short chapters on drones being used to help people, a history of drones, how they work, how they are made, and the future of drones. It features interesting “factoids”, creative layouts, lots of amazing photographs, and easy to understand text.

I didn’t find this book as well written or intriguing as the Law Enforcement Robots book by this same author (which had a ton of information about drones). I am sure students at my school have either seen drones or even own them –so this book would be of interest to them –but I did find it kind of boring. This book could easily be read by 2-6th graders.
