Robots are perennial kid-favorites. In his new series, acclaimed illustrator Marc Rosenthal’s vividly colored, retro-futuristic robots encourage kids age 2 to 5 to lift the flaps and learn all about basic concepts.
Big Bot, Small Bot invites young readers to play with robots who demonstrate opposites such as “quiet” and “loud,” “front” and “back,” and “full” and “empty.” Each illustration is presented with a gatefold that, when lifted, transforms the image into its opposite!
One Robot Lost His Head follows the travails of a slightly clumsy robot who can't quite keep track of his own head, and the smart robot pals who help him find it. A gatefold on each spread opens to reveal a visual punch line that teaches kids basic number skills while making them laugh.
Marc’s illustrations can be seen regularly in The New Yorker, Time, Forbes, Fortune, The Atlantic Monthly, The New York Times, Boston Globe, and The Washington Post.
