Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1–It's a snow day and for the robot children, sledding, snow angels, and snowball fights are all on tap. Some of them stay out too long and freeze into ice cubes, only to be rescued by “metallic moms/and dads of chrome” who warm them up with “cocoa spiked with axle grease” and hot oil baths. Using bouncy rhyming text and a sure ear for machine talk, Reynolds will delight young robot fans with references to wiping sleep “rust” from eyes; eating cereal with gasoline, and losing remote controls. The acrylic and colored pencil artwork features an array of mechanical kids and household props and plug-ins. The cool, blue-tinged snow scenes contrast with the warm yellows and browns of the house interiors. Libraries with robot fans won't want to pass on this snowy fun.–Marge Loch-Wouters, La Crosse Public Library, WIα(c) Copyright 2010.

Our kids, ages 3-7, really love this book. What a creative idea for a children's book -- children robots with very human characteristics who play in the snow. The story is fun and engaging, and the artwork is also well done and very creative. It is a nice large-sized hardback book, which makes it a great book to have for a long time. The illustrations are memorable and kids can easily relate to the story. The first time we read the book, our son exclaimed "It's rhyming!" and wanted us to read the book over and over. We bought more copies because "Snowbots" makes a great gift.

Adorable combination of robots (one of my 4 year old grandson's favorite things) and snow (another bonus) together for a fun, rhyming story with parents as the heroes. You'll love it, I did!

Have you ever thought about what would happen if robots played in the snow? Neither have I. Thankfully the author and illustrator of "Snowbots" thought did and took us along for the adventure. "Snowbots" is a well-written rhyming book that follows robot children as they play outside on a snow day. The illustrations are cute and clever. I enjoyed it.

Love this book! Rhyming & easy to read. My child, 4 1/2 boy, love hearing about the snow - we go snowboarding about 30-40 days a year. He has memorized a lot of the book after a dozen times of reading. Bought multiple books to give away as gifts.
