I am hosting a giveaway for the book Robobaby. This is a new picture book from triple Caldecott winner David Wiesner. In this hilarious gem, it’s big sister to the rescue when a new baby is delivered to a family of robots and the adults are flummoxed by technical difficulties.

The winner of this giveaway will receive a hardcover copy with a signed, specially designed bookplate.

Now there is a separate giveaway. This grand prize giveaway features a hardcover of Robobaby with signed bookplate, as well as a programmable build-a-robot kit for kids (total ARV $59.98, US/Can only.

About the Book: A new baby’s arrival is a big moment in any family, even a family of robots. Award winner David Wiesner captures the excitement and fanfare when baby Flange appears—as a crate full of components. The adults bungle the process of assembling Flange, with catastrophic results. Big sister Cathy, with her handy toolbox and advanced knowledge of robotics and IT, hasn’t been allowed to help, but in the ensuing chaos she calmly clears up the technical difficulties and bonds with her new baby brother.

Robobaby is an eye-opening blend of the familiar and the fanciful that is laugh out loud funny. Gorgeously illustrated, it joyously celebrates girl ingenuity and maker culture in a fantastically fun way.

About the author: David Wiesner is internationally renowned for his visual storytelling and has won the Caldecott Medal three times—for Tuesday, The Three Pigs, and Flotsam—the second person in history to do so. He is also the recipient of three Caldecott Honors, for Free Fall, Sector 7, and Mr. Wuffles. He lives near Philadelphia with his family.

About the robot: Once assembled (which is part of the educational fun), the remote-controlled robot can move left, right, front, back and 360 degree. Remote control distance over 20 meters. It can also be controlled with the smartphone app via remote control mode, path mode, voice control, gravity sensor, and STEM programming. The modes are simple and easy to use. The robot joints are free to move, and the head, shoulders, arms, elbows, tracks, and eyebrows can be rotated for various expressions. Rechargeable batteries via USB cable.
