The Wild Robot

by Peter Brown Year Published: 2016


It should come as no surprise to you that our book pick of the week is The Wild Robot. Written by Peter Brown, the book follows Roz, a robot who’s been stranded on an island only inhabited by animals. She must learn to survive, adapt, and co-exist with the creatures who are all understandably initially terrified of her. As they learn to work together and raise each other up, an outside threat looms. Will the island family find a way to save the day?  There are a ton of chapters in this book, but they are short. There is a lot of subtle humor throughout the book that will make older readers smile. Please encourage your families to read this TOGETHER, as it’s a great read aloud. I’m so excited about this book as our SEVENTH iteration of One Book, One School!
