Robots: What They Are, What They Do (Greenwillow Read-Alone Books)
Grade 2-4-- Berger cleverly traces the historical roots of the robot from early Greek mythology to the present. Clearly written and crisply illustrated with line drawings printed in two colors, the text will engage readers' interest with descriptions of how a robot is built, its components, and how it works. Further, the section on its applications in the real world will be especially useful to emerging computer scientists. A good choice to get students interested in technology.
