2017 Christmas Gift Review & Giveaway - November 13, 2017 - Goodnight, Little Bot

Around this grandma's house, robots are well liked. The younger grandsons like stories about robots and my older grandson is interested in building robots, so when Sterling Children's Books invited me to review their new book about a little robot, I was pretty sure my grandsons would enjoy the book.

Goodnight, Little Bot
Author - Karen Kaufman Orloff
Illustrator - Kim Smith
Publisher - Sterling Children's Books
Ages - 3+

Favorite Features -
  • Very colorful illustrations
  • Story takes children through Bot's bedtime routine
  • Easy book for beginning readers to read for themselves
Sterling Children's Books says; "'Little Bot, it’s time for bed. Let’s get ready, sleepyhead.' A sweet goodnight story with a unique hero. Even little robots need their rest—and their parents tuck them in just like human mommies and daddies do. It doesn’t matter if young bots slip on their pjs over power packs and enjoy batteries for their pre-sleep snack; just like children, they love bedtime stories, hugs, a cuddly toy, and lullabies. This charming picture book is perfect for winding kids (and robots) down for the night."

My youngest grandsons especially enjoyed this story about Little Bot and his bedtime routine. We did talk about how while little bots like to snack on batteries and oil, real little boys - or big boys - do NOT put batteries or oil in their mouths. But, other than feeling we need to be sure the children we love do not think it was okay to eat batteries/oil, I think Goodnight, Little Bot is a fun and charming story - especially for bedtime. 

I'm very happy to say, not only did Sterling Children's Books send me one copy of Goodnight, Little Bot for me to review, but they are making another available for me to give away (USA only). If you are over the age of 18 and would like to enter this drawing for one Goodnight, Little Bot which will be on November 10, 2017, please comment below to share about what bedtime looks like at your house - we tend to read books and snuggle - especially at bedtime.
