Roundtable Reading: The Wild Robot by Peter Brown
Recommended for ages 8 & up (younger kids welcome as listeners)
Reading led by
Adoria Williams is a librarian at Jefferson Elementary School in Berkeley.
When robot Roz opens her eyes for the first time, she discovers that she is alone on a remote, wild island. She has no idea how she got there or what her purpose is, but she knows she needs to survive. After battling a fierce storm and escaping a vicious bear attack, she realizes that her only hope for survival is to adapt to her surroundings and learn from the island’s unwelcoming animal inhabitants. As Roz slowly befriends the animals, the island starts to feel like home until, one day, the robot’s mysterious past comes back to haunt her.
