"Robotics for Young Children is thought-provoking and will inspire educators. Short vignettes enrich the activities and demonstrate how to generate opportunities for young children to develop important computational thinking skills as they play and learn with digital technologies."--Dr. Karen J. Murcia, Curtin University Perth Western Australia
"This book takes a solid, sensible, and low-geek approach to robotics for children. Within the educational narrative, the glory of the book is a suite of suggested activities, that benefit from an authenticity and creativity born of years of actual experience. It gives teachers the knowledge and confidence to stay afloat amidst a swarm of digital natives and cranky robots."--Michael Peshkin, robotics professor, Northwestern University
"Any early childhood educator who wants to learn more about how robotics can fit into their classroom should start with this comprehensive resource."--Wendy Brenneman, manager of Early Childhood STEM Initiatives, Carnegie Science Center
"User-friendly and accessible instruction guide. . . Robotics for Young Children can be easily included in a developmentally appropriate curriculum and offers a balance of adult-facilitated and child-centered activities, making it an ideal and unreservedly recommended addition to classroom, school district, college, and university library Teacher Education instructional materials collections." --Wisconsin Bookwatch, The Education Shelf, January 2018
