Book of the Week, Children's

Clink by Kelly Dipucchio and Matthew Myers

Reasons why I liked this book, and chose it as Book of the Week:

It’s about an adorable robot. I love robots. Need I say more?!

I love how the end papers are diagrams of the inner workings of a robot, specifically Clink.

Clink isn’t old, he’s antique.

I love how this book shows that we all have flaws, and those flaws make us who we are, what sets us apart from others. Clink shows us that we should embrace those flaws, and love ourselves.

A big part of the book shows us that new things come along all the time, but those new things aren’t always better.

Clink’s robot friends are all supportive, and always try to cheer him up when he’s feeling down. And sometimes they give him things like red polka dot underwear.

I love how all the robots featured in the book have their own personalities. One makes cookies, one gives nifty haircuts.

I illustrations are a perfect fit for the overall story. The rich and inviting. Readers will fall in love with this book.

Like the illustrations, the writing is rich.

I love how Clink is willing to try new things, even if they turn out disastrous.

This book really shows that there is a friend out there for everyone. And everyone no matter how old, young, or different deserves friendship.

Clink is a funky little robot. Not only can he make toast, but he can also make music and bust a move (a.k.a. dance). And boy he can dance!

Click is really lovable.

This book really shows how one persons trash is someone else’s treasure.

Clink is a must read for kids of all ages.
