Even the youngest robotocists will love flipping the flaps to create their own robot—while exploring a simple A to Z roundup of robotics terms.

Found your circuit-board head? Your voice-control torso? Your hydrojet feet? Hooray! You’ve made one of the 729 mix-and-match robots that are possible with this innovative flip-flap book. Alongside the bright and cheery illustrations of robot parts is a basic alphabetical listing of terms—from android to gears, neural network to program, wheels to Z-drive—and a basic definition of each. With a concealed spiral binding and sturdy card stock pages to hold up to enthusiastic flap-turning, AlphaBot is full of appeal for young robot lovers, preschoolers who love machines, and anyone looking for STEM books for the younger set. Back matter includes a brief explanation of the three key abilities of robots: to sense, think, and act.

Alphabot is a complex book that is perfect for teaching vocabulary needed in learning STEM robotic concepts. This book will take several read-throughs to see all the different variations of robots that can be created in this mix-and-match page-turning extravaganza where 729 different robots can be made. Each page takes a letter from the alphabet to define a concept or word needed to work with robots. This would be great in STEM classes with older elementary children or to just have fun designing your own zany robot for younger children. Overall, this book was engaging and sure to be of interest to fans of robots!
