"“The final, nearly wordless pages, with snapshots of the friends at play, are priceless.”
Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, February 15, 2012:
“Dyckman’s debut offers pitch-perfect pacing and gentle humor…. as Boy and Bot would say, it’s ‘affirmative’ that this book will be a hit.”
Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, February 6, 2012:
“Dyckman’s pared-down prose gives the role-reversal story just enough drama, humor, and robot-inflected dialogue…to keep children entertained for many re-readings.”
Review, The New York Times Book Review (online edition), April 11, 2012:
“It’s a perfectly adorable, age-appropriate friendship. And it’s simply impossible to imagine a 4-year-old boy not wanting to be friends with this book.”

Take a boy and a robot, construct a friendship, add a little misunderstanding, tighten up with the help of the inventor, and voila - Ame Dyckman has built the perfect picture book.
Funny and sweet, you'll want to read this book again and again.
Every child will wish for a friend like Bot!
I do have one concern about the book though; at one point in the story, an unknown adult takes the child for a ride in his car. Safety issues may not be of concern when actually reading the book, but I did find this part a little odd.

The illustrations here are fantastic.
The writing is explanatory rather than narrative. Honestly it would've been better as a wordless picture book. Read more
Such a sweet and simple story. My 4-year-old thinks all the parts where Bot takes care of Boy are hilarious.Published 1 month ago by psychsomething
Really cute story. Very engaging for a toddler boy. The pages turn quickly and the story is tender, about friends taking care of friends. :-)Published 2 months ago by Sue E. C.
