About the Book
Dot really wants a puppy – but on her 8th birthday, she is given a robot dog instead! If she can train this robot dog, then she will prove to her parents that she can handle a real live dog. How hard could it be?
Follow along with Dot as she is introduced to some of the logic, reasoning, and structure used to program robots – as well as the importance of curiosity and never giving up!
Will Dot be able to prove she is ready for a real live puppy?
This is a picture book for ages 5 to 8 (or adults who are still young at heart!)
