How to Explain Robotics to a Grown-Up

Coming September 17, 2024. Pre-order today!

By: Ruth Spiro / Illustrated by: Teresa Martínez

The best-selling author of the Baby Loves Science series levels up with this playful STEM picture book introducing kids–and grown-ups–to the robotics world.

Do you want to know a secret? Sometimes grown-ups need YOU to explain things to THEM. Like robotics!

In this tongue-in-cheek guide, an in-the-know narrator instructs kid readers in the fine art of explaining robotics to a grown-up. Both children and their adults learn:

  • what makes a robot a robot,
  • who designs and builds robots,
  • and how robots work on their own to get a job done.

Fun and fact-filled, the How to Explain Science series will empower kid experts to explore complex scientific concepts with any grown-up who will listen.

Maximum quantity available reached.
