Best Robot Books
If you are in the robot stage, this list is for you. If you have not gotten there yet, pin it, you are going to want to have it down the road.
We start with a very cool board book that I know you are going to love (we do!) The Robot Book is a delight. Even the cover has interest and one simply has to open this book and play around with it. There are a lot of neat things to move about such as nuts and bolts, and gears, gears and more gears. The ending is sweet and this book is a winner! Recommended.
Star Wars: R2-D2 and Friendsby Simon Beecroft is great for young readers. The book is geared toward kids who are beginning to read on their own. Great photographs from the Star Wars movies are included. Less of a story and more informational about R2-D2 and his friends.
Boy and Bot by Amy Dyckman is one of those “must read” books that has to be included in any respectable best robot books for boys list. After all it has a boy, and a robot, and it is nifty as well. A wonderful friendship book.
The Three Little Aliens and the Big Bad Robot by Margaret McNamara & Mark Fearing is silly. It is a 3 Little Pigs fractured fairy tale. Stay clear of the Big Bad Robot or he will “shatter and clatter and scatter you house down!”
Robot Zot! by Jon Scieszka and David Shannon is a super popular book for boys. Get your robot voice tuned up for this fun book. You will be reading it again and again. After all what boy doesn’t want to conquer earth and save a princess.
You must see the charming illustrations of If I Had a Robot by Dan Yaccarino. He is a delight and there are more titles by him on the list. A young boy wishes he didn’t have to eat his veggies (sound familiar?) and he wishes he had a robot to do things like that for him–or does he?
Rolie Polie Olie by William Joyce is classic robot rhyming book. I am in love with the illustration style mostly because I am big fan of tiny details and this book has a lot of them. Delightful.
For something different try Can You See What I See?: Out of This World by Walter Wick. He writes fun books for sure. Your boy will have fun trying to find the robot in each of the pictures, along with a plethora of other things.
Doug Unplugged and Doug Unplugs on the Farm by Dan Yaccarino are great robot books for boys. Plug him in to give him a ton of information vs going unplugged and experiencing life–pretty interesting (and yes I could write a whole long post about that thought.) Both books are good, but I like the first one better.
CookieBot!: A Harry and Horsie Adventureby Katie Van Camp and Lincoln Agnew is a classic boy wants cookie, cookie jar is up too high to reach, story. Featuring a seriously retro 1950s illustration style–it is very, very neat. Great imaginative book boys will love. Recommended.
Or, if you need other book ideas, try our Robots! Non-Fiction.
Thanks for reading. Hope you enjoyed this list of the best robot books for boys!
