review 1: This book is rated a level one, but I do not know if I should even have that ranking. It is very basic having simple text that rhymes and repeats. This book follows a little girl and her robot, she begins with giving him simple commands and he eventually leaves because he feels used and is tired of being bossed around. When he little girl finds him she apologizes by pushing him on a swing.This book would be good if trying to teach students the "ow" sound because of its repetition throughout. The pictures in this book are brightly colored and follow along nicely with the story.
review 2: In this most simple of graphic novels, a little girl builds a robot and when she presses the big red button, it comes to life. The robot happily plays with bubbles with her, p

Finally, the robot has had enough and leaves. While the girl searches for him, she realizes that she has to be a good friend in order to have a good friend. Rau has written a very simple book here with only minimal words that often rhyme for even simpler reading. It is the pictures that really tell this story completely. Done in comic style, they have rounded panels. Yet they also have the feel of picture book illustrations with their bright colors and playful feel. The softness of the illustrations also invite very young children to read. I appreciated the choice to have the main character a girl, since so many robot books have male characters. Simple and playful, this most beginning of graphic novels is inviting to little children and has the appeal of robots as well. Appropriate for ages 4-6. less
