ON A REVIEW SITE:
When I had the opportunity to review this book, I jumped on it. I just knew my three and five year old would absolutely adore it. They are both perpetually bored and they (especially the five year old) have been asking for a dog a LOT lately.
Bing is a typical boy. Bored with no one or thing to play with, he takes his fate into his own hands and makes a robot to play with. He always wanted a dog named Nero, so he names the robot Nero instead.
Ever since I got this book, my girls have been picking it to read every night. It’s basically the book equivalent of Disney’s Frozen!
The illustrations are very well done and I love how the background of the pages change color.
My seven year old also loves to read this book to her little sisters. She only needs a little bit of help with some words.
Overall I highly recommend, and my girls give it two thumbs and two toes up.
“The perfect story for every kid who has ever wanted their own robot.”
