K-Gr 3–A group of young friends build a treehouse with the help of a friendly robot in this colorful picture book about robots and simple machines. Readers first meet a young girl opening a package and building a robot using instructions. The kids decide how to build their tree house and the affable robot is there to help. The robot helps chop and transport wood and build the tree, while also using simple machines such as nails, a hammer, and a ladder. The friends all enjoy their newly constructed treehouse together. Colorful illustrations paint a bright, fun world readers will love to revisit, with cheerful chums and even a sweet dog to befriend. Each spread features sing-song Spanish text that asks a question: “¿Quien nos puede ayudar?” or who can help us? The spread also includes an illustration of the simple machine being used. Accompanying pages provide additional information on the topic. Readers can also dance along with the animated singalong video using the included QR code. The protagonist has dark skin and plays with a diverse group of friends.
VERDICT An excellent addition to Spanish-language picture book collections, and a solid choice for young fans of science, technology, and robots!
