STORYTIME: Robots & Outter Space

If I Had a Robot by Dan Yaccarino

Hello, Robot by Bob Staake- I really love this book. The illustrations are a little abstract and his colors pallet is so bright. This story about 4 robots is a crowd pleaser.

Here in Space by David Mailgrim - A little boy tells of the wonders in the world he lives in in outer space which sound suspiciously like our own world.

I Want to Be an Astronaut by Byron Barton - Big bold black outlined images tell the story of a person wanting to go into outer space. A fast read.

Boy + Bot by Ame Dyckman- I like this book because it has a narrative yet is still a good read aloud for toddlers. I get this question a lot from teachers looking for books that are good for that age group but have character development and plot. A great not too long, but humorous book.

If the Moon Could Talk by Kate Banks - A soft gentle story with illustrations that kids can enjoy from afar as well as up close. Would recommend using this as an opening story as the plot is told in a slow and steady pace.
