Get in on the action with September’s Arrow selection (ages 9-12):
The Wild Robot, Peter Brown. Little Brown Books for Young Readers, 2016. 288 pages.
The Wild Robot by Peter Brown is NOT about a robot GONE wild, but a robot IN the wild. When Roz the Robot finds herself stranded on an island, she develops unexpected relationships with the local inhabitants. As she learns to survive in an environment she was not built for, she creates connections and community. A robot with a big heart, Roz’s search for meaning will create plenty of opportunities to discuss friendship, family, the blending of nature and technology, and so much more.
