The Robot and the Bluebird by David Lucas.“There once was a robot with a broken heart.” This is a precious story about a bond between a broken and rusting robot and a cold, tired, little bird. The illustrations, described as “winsome,” which means charming or engaging, are precisely as much that as the story is endearing. The robot cannot be fixed and is discarded to a junk heap, where he feels useless, like a pile of rubbish, until a bluebird flies nearby and needs somewhere to rest. She is due to fly south for the winter, but is in danger of freezing, so the robot, who has found a new lease on life, offers to carry the little bird to a warmer place. “Together they set off on a memorable journey.” This is a most enjoyable book for young preschool age children who will warm to the timeless story of friendship, inspiration, trust, and love.
