The Robot and the Bluebird

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Andersen Press

A Robot with a broken heart is sent to the scrapheap. An exhausted, migrating Bluebird shelters where the Robot’s heart used to be; he builds her a nest of wires.

The Robot loves the warmth and life the Bluebird brings to him and he offers to carry it through the cold lands to the warm south. When the Robot reaches his destination he is exhausted.

He asks the Bluebird to make its home in his heart. Now he stands forever, his rusted arms outstretched, while families of birds make their nests inside him and perch on him to sing.

This touching and uplifting story of friendship has large, bright and evocative illustrations and is ideal for sharing or classroom use.
