"Destined to become a new bedtime favorite.” Foreword Reviews

A mother robot lovingly explains all the ways her built-in features help her love her adorable robot child. From hologram projector eyes to extending arms filled with books, this mom robot has a built-in feature or contraption for every parenting need. This delightful homage to innate parental love shows that a mother’s love for their child has many applications, and it’s always automatic.

Reviews and Accolades

“Román’s bright, imaginative illustrations stand out…[A] warmly illustrated ode to familial care.”
Publishers Weekly

“The art is decidedly retro and recalls many mechanical creatures of several animated movies; the rather surprising palette is dominated by pink, orange, turquoise, and metallic blue…[A]n immersive lap-reading experience for youngsters.”
Kirkus Reviews
