Little Robot Alone by Patricia MacLachlan - OPTIONAL

Little Robot Alone by Patricia MacLachlan and Emily MacLachlan Charest, illustrated by Matt Phelan. PICTURE BOOK.  Houghton Mifflin, 2018.  $18. 9780544442801

Pre-K, EL (K-3) – OPTIONAL. 

Little Robot lives a sweet, quiet life in the white house at the top of the hill.  Until the day he realizes that he is lonely.  But he knows a way to fix that! With some elbow grease and ingenuity, he can make himself a new friend for company.

While we humans can’t make our own friends, Little Robot’s story is still a sweet recognition that everyone really does want a friend for good company.  This could be a nice segue into a discussion about what it means to be a friend, what friendship looks and sounds like, and what to do when you are not friends any more.
