"On the ground and in the air, /Robots, robots everywhere!
Up in space, beneath the seas, /Robots make discoveries..."

So begins this rollicking Little Golden Book featuring robots of all kinds, from ones up in space to the ones we use at home. With bold, colorful artwork by award-winner Bob Staake, it's a perfect introduction to the fascinating subject of today's real robots!

(synopsis from Goodreads)

This is one of the newer Little Golden Books, being published in 2013. I can only imagine what the kids who read the original books back in the 1940s would have thought of this one!

Robots, Robots Everywhere is a cute rhyming book with colourful, detailed illustrations about various types of robots. It reminds me of a school report I had to do when I was around seven on the subject of robots. They're basically machines that do work... so that includes everything from milking machines to today's robot vacuums. Some examples of robots we might see in the future (such as human-like robot playmates and robot dogs) are also included.

The rhythm of the text is quite nice, and there's plenty to look at in the pictures. This would be a great book for kids who are interested in robots and technology.
