R is for Robot: A Noisy Alphabet
by Adam F. Watkins
Price Stern Sloan, 2014. unpaged picture book

Here is the latest addition to our new ABC hot topics collection in the Picture Books section.  This creative alphabet book features different sounds created by robots. "A" is for "ahooga" and "B" is for "Beep Boop".  The sound words are the only text, and are printed in large, expressive, art fonts.  The robots in the illustrations are of a variety of shapes and sizes, and all are working together to assemble the giant, colorful, sheet metal letters.  The colorful cartoon pictures are funny and there is much for the young reader to see and notice on each page. This is a great choice for a preschooler or an older child who likes robots.
