Recommends it for: Young Robot Lovers / Children Who Resist Bedtime
It's bedtime in Botsburg, and all the robots are powering down. All, that is, save Bitty Bot, who, in contravention of all the rules, is working on a rocket to the moon. A nighttime trip to that celestial body proves entertaining to our robotic hero, who returns home in time to fall into bed, just as others are beginning to mobilize for the day...

With an entertaining story told in rhyme - "All the bots in Botsburg beep: / Day is over. Time for sleep! / Kiss your papas, hug your mamas. / Activate

Another "I don't wanna go to bed" book, only with robots. The bright art has a nice retro feel to it, and the RHYMES WORK. Sadly, I emphasize this, because it's becoming a rarity among such books.
Not the best book ever, but certainly another book to add to the shelf for kids who love robots.

I just got a publicity kit for this release, which included a copy of the book! I really do love it, I enjoyed the cute rhyming text, and the illustrations were very pleasing. I like the color scheme as well, and plan to hang the poster that I received is on my wall.

One of the cutest books for the wee-ones! Sadly, it's too young for my ewoks, but we enjoyed it. I read it a few times. Written by Tim McCanna and illustrated by Tad Carpenter, Bitty Bot is a story about a little robot who wants to go on adventures in outer space than go to sleep, like everyone else in his world.

First, the cover's totally cute! The gadgets and colors behind Bitty and his pet keep the eyes busy. The art style is unique and offers up a 60's vibe. I liked it! The story was writt

Very clever rhyming story about a robot who refuses to go to sleep when the others power down. He takes a trip instead and powers down when the others are waking up and getting started for the day.
Fun read and lots of color in the illustrations. The meter is pleasing and good read aloud to K-3rd grade children.

Too cute!

All the bots in Botsburg beep:
"Day is over. Time for sleep!"
"Kiss your papas, hug your mamas.
Activate your bot pajamas."

But Bitty Bot has some night time adventures in mind:>)

Bitty Bot is not like other robots. When everyone else goes to sleep, he stays awake inventing, creating, and exploring what his imagination has to offer. One night, he uses his invention to fly to the moon where he joins a party and has fun fun fun until slowly he gets sleepier and sleepier. The creatures he encounters on the moon encourage him to hurry home and get some much-needed sleep, and when all the other bots get up in the morning, Bitty Bot sleeps in order to recharge for another night ...more

A little robot would rather go on an intergalactic adventure than go to sleep in this rhyming romp that breaks all the bedtime rules.

In a busy robot town
bots begin to power down.
All except for Bitty Bot!

1/29/2017 ** I love reading online lists of books. I love using the power of technology to request books and having them placed on hold for me at the public library.

But sometimes, there's no substitution for just browsing the shelves of new books at the public library. This is a classic "It's time for bed. But I don't want to" book for toddlers and preschool children. Bitty Bot gets in bed, goes on an adventure, and then returns home to sleep. I enjoyed the imagination.

A fun rhyming picture book for the younger picture book lover in your life. I liked it but it came off just a little too precious. Not sure young readers will have a problem with that. They will definitely have a fun time perusing the illustrations that are teeming over with robots and space creatures.

Actual rating: 2.5 stars.

Like others said, the illustrations are beautiful and the rhyming is cute so it might keep some kids engaged, but there's not a whole lot to the story or even the fact that it involves robots. Why would you waste your robot angle? :( If it was a story about bears it wouldn't make a whole lot of difference, and that was sadly disappointing.

My nephew wanted to read this. He's big into robots and loves this story. He wants to buy Bitty Bot. I think the artwork is beautiful and I don't think a whole lot of the story. Great art work, ok story. ...more

Bitty Bot is the adventurous 'child' in all of us. Small children can relate to his questioning spirit and desire to see new places. A futuristic spin that is repeatable again and again. ...more

Kids who love space and robots will enjoy this playful story about “Bitty Bot” on a nighttime adventure. My 4-year old loves this book and asks us to read it every day. The rhyming is spot on and illustrations are full of color and action.

An adorable story about a robot who doesn't go to bed and instead has an adventure on the moon. This book is in rhyme and it flows wonderfully. The colors are really saturated and bright - bold blues, vibrant oranges - I thought the artwork and story worked together wonderfully. ...more
