#blogbookaday: Doll-E 1.0

5 Jul

Doll-E 1.0Summary:  “A STEM-friendly tale of a girl and the doll she upgrades to be her new friend, for fans of The Most Magnificent Thing and Rosie Revere, Engineer.

Charlotte’s world is fully charged! With her dog at her side, she’s always tinkering, coding, clicking, and downloading. She’s got a knack for anything technological–especially gadgets that her parents don’t know how to fix! Then, she receives a new toy that is quite a puzzle: a doll! What’s she supposed to do with that? Once she discovers the doll’s hidden battery pack, things start to get interesting…while her faithful canine sidekick wonders if he’ll be overshadowed by the new and improved Doll-E 1.0! With a little ingenuity and an open mind, everyone can be friends in this endearing, modern tribute to the creative spirit of play.” (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: STEM gets flipped on it’s head in this story of a little girl who love to tinker, code and download, so when her mother buys her a doll… she’s not quite sure what to do with it!

Personal Reaction: I loved the way the author encouraged girls in STEM, but also encouraged them to unplug and use their imaginations to work hard at play. Kids will definitely relate to Charlotte as she likes to play with technology, but learns how fun it is to try something new!

#blogbookaday (1)This is a new idea I’m trying on my blog this year that was inspired by @donalynbooks and @heisereads – to provide a brief review of a picture book every day of 2018. You’ll get a brief summary of the story, a review of the content, illustrations and theme, my personal reaction to the book and all the pertinent publication information! Enjoy!
