Summary:  A jolly group of robots helps readers understand the difference between fact and opinion.  The robot is green: fact. Green is a good color for a robot: opinion. The robot’s name is Bubba: we need more information.  Kids will also learn how to respect others’ opinions and not try to convince someone else that their opinion is wrong. Is it an awesome book?  Well, that’s an opinion question. But you can read it again if you want, and that’s a fact. 32 pages; ages 4-8.

Pros:  A timely topic for children of all ages, introduced in a way that is fun and easy to understand.  I can’t think of any other kids’ books on this topic, and it’s an important one. As an aside, Michael Rex and I grew up on the same street in Chatham, NJ (fact), and I am always delighted when I see one of his books (opinion).

Cons:  I’m pretty sure Mr. and Mrs. Rex know where I live, so I’m going to refrain from any negative feedback about their son’s book.
