Lots of Bots!
is the first title in a new pop-up series by David A. Carter, creator of the hugely successful Bugs in a Box series. Kids will learn counting from 1 to 10 and the more advanced can count all of the 55 Bots in this book! Fantastic pop-ups with lots to look at--things that spin, turn, and bounce; tabs to pull; and lots of movement will keep kids busy for hours.
1 brave Rescue Bot; 3 Giggle, Jiggle Wiggle Bots; 4 kooky Kissing Bots; 8 happy Hip-Hop Bots; 10 amazing Acro Bots and more abound in this lively, funny and timely pop-up book.
"Turning his attention away from bugs, David Carter and his wife, Noelle, launch a pop-up series with a counting book that introduces an eclectic cast of specialized robots that sport antennae, springs, wheels, pincers, and other handy apparatuses. Using a question-and-answer format to count up to 10, the book asks energetic, reader-directed questions like 'Who makes you happy when you are sad?' with the answers appearing in verse (in this case, lifting a red curtain reveals '3 Giggle Jiggle Wiggle Bots will soon make you glad'). Carter's quirky robots that do everything from provide kisses and brush teeth to search for undersea treasure should have effortless appeal for the preschool audience. Agent: JNJ Agency. Ages 3 up."
