Trailer Tuesday: Lots of Bots! a Counting Pop-Up Book

25 Oct

My preschoolers love pop-ups. Just like pretty much every other kid. I shared David Carter’s One Red Dot with them for a numbers/colors storytime and they LOVED hunting for the dot and shouting “I see it!” when they found it. I used the story as an opportunity for vocabulary building – the kids had to tell me WHERE on the page/structure they found it, and not just point and say “there” (which they are inclined to do).

Now David Carter has come up with another delightful pop-up that I think my kids will love: Lots of Bots! A Counting Pop-Up Book.  Robots and pop-ups. How could learning to count get any more fun?

 

And, to make things THAT MUCH MORE FUN, Random House is taking advantage of how tech savvy today’s generation is by giving us an app based on Lots of Bots, called Bot Garage! It works on iphone, ipad, and ipod touch, and of course I had to have it.  Give your bot arms, legs, a torso and head, and add a background and accessories. At $.99, it’s a steal!

 

Here’s a picture of a bot I created, whom I named “Trixie”:
