Teachers, save “What I'm Reading At Home (Week of 3/23)” to assign it to your class.

What I'm Reading (Week of 3/23) 1. The Wild Robot by Peter Brown 2. The genre of my book is fantasy fiction or science fiction. My evidence is that all the animals in this story talk and respond like humans, and a robot named Roz learns how to function on her own without being programmed, and also talks and responds like a human. 3. The author's purpose is to entertain us. Peter Brown writes lots of children's books with the intention of teaching a lesson about ourselves, but he also wants us to laugh, wonder, and think about the possibilities of a make believe world. 4. Some of the text features found in this fiction book are illustrations, headings, italic words, bold words. 5. Summary: The Wild Robot, written by Peter Brown, is a tale of one robot's journey from being a robot monster who arrives in a crate on the edge of an unknown island, to being the friend (and mother) no one expected. Roz, our beloved robot, experiences many challenges on the island, and doesn't ever know her true purpose there. Despite this, she becomes friends with all the animals on the island and discovers that friendship and family will save her. 6. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes humor, adventure, stories involving robots. I love robots and love how Peter Brown has made his main character Roz incredibly kind and caring, which challenges what we usually think of robots as being.
