Wonderful

Both my kids (ages 3 and 6) have loved both Wild Robot stories: got us through two long car journeys. Worth every penny. Something about the stories and the way they are delivered is captivating.

Excellent Kid’s Book

I loved this book. Imaginative and well written. The narration was great.

The kids kept asking to listen to it in the car and before bed.

Highly recommend.

Outstanding story, reading, and production

I teach robotics at the university level, and also do a lot of K-12 outreach. The technical accuracy is stunning, and this book together with its predecessor also tells a thoroughly gripping story. The reading is marvelous, and I love the sound effects. They are subtle, but perfectly introduced. About halfway through listening I was gifted the hardcover set, which will take a place on my bookshelf reserved for the best treasures that I am sure will be admired for years to come.
