The Wild Robot

The Wild RobotThe Wild Robot
by Peter Brown
Grades 4 & up

When a crate carrying an advanced robot with artificial intelligence washes up on a remote island, curious sea otters press the power button and set in motion a chain of events that change the lives of those on the island forever. Roz, as the robot comes to be called, is programmed to learn from her situation and that is exactly what she does. There are no humans on the island, so Roz starts observing the animals. Over time she learns their languages and begins to interact with them. This is a fascinating survival story and asks the larger questions of what it means to be a friend, to be a parent, and even to be alive. Highly recommended for grades 4 & up.
