For our latest story walk, I featured the book Boy + Bot by Ame Dyckman. The idea to use this title came entirely from Bryce and her awesome story action pods.
For this one, I emailed both the author and illustrator explaining my plan, and asking for permission to photocopy the pages and use the story. They gave permission, with the request that I not post photos of the illustrations on the internet. The author who is AWESOME even sent me a box of swag to put out for kids! Bookmarks, stickers, buttons, plastic frisbees! (I’ve only had to tell one kid and one dad not to throw the frisbee in the library. WIN).
So you’ll have to imagine the pages of the book covering our windows. If you haven’t read the book, I’ll wait while you go find it and read it.
But my favorite part was seeing what kids came up with when they made their own bots!
