Book Review: Brobot Bedtime

28 Apr

31305485.jpgBrobot Bedtime by Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen and illustrated by Scott Campbell is the adorable story of three robot brothers who are having trouble falling asleep, well one brobot is having trouble sleeping causing the other two brothers to try and help fall asleep before Mommybot comes back into their bedroom.

Poor Beep gets the flick-ups (hiccups), is scared of the possibility of monsters, the light is too bright, the blanket fort is too hot, the fan is too loud… well, you get the picture.  But, when Buzz, Crash and Beep work together they finally help Beep fall asleep. I’m not going to spoil the ending, but it continues to be adorable until the final page!

The only way to read this story is in your best robot voice, kudos to you if you have three unique robot voices for each of the brother robots. The illustrations are also adorable, allowing you to easily follow who’s speaking as their word bubbles are the same colors as their bodies. It’s also helpful because each robot look unique making it easy to differentiate between the three.

What brothers wouldn’t love a story about robots, a blanket fort and bedtime?!? Share this with your favorite brobots (at bedtime)!

Twitter Booktalk (140 characters or less): Beep can’t fall asleep, can the brobots help Beep enter “sleep mode” before he breaks down and Mommybot comes in to give them all a reboot?
