Most kid friendships start with one kid asking: "Want to play?" When the other kid is a robot, the answer is "Affirmative!" Boy and Bot have a great day until Bot's power switch gets bumped and he turns off. The boy asks, "Are you sick?" When Bot doesn't answer the Boy takes Bot home and does the things humans do to help each other feel better - a snack, a story, and a nap!
Boy takes a nap too. While he does, Bot's switch gets turned back on. Bot talks to Boy but Boy doesn't answer. "Did-you-malfunction?" Bot asks. And Bot does what robots do to fix each other - oil, reading the instruction manual, and a new battery!
FINALLY, Boy wakes up and Bot is powered up at the same time! Good times! Author: Ame Dyckman

"But I'm not tired!" I know you've heard this. Many nights. Maybe every night! It's so hard for kids to stop when playing is so much fun. The trick is winding them down for a good sleep while they are still having fun. We are all familiar with the "stayed up too late" meltdown!
In this story a little girl really doesn't want to go to bed. She protests all the while her parents are gently moving her through the rituals of bedtime: putting on pajamas, washing her face, brushing her teeth.
When she is finally tucked in she wants to know if everything in the whole world has to go to sleep. What follows is a listing of several animals and how they sleep ending with the tiger...because yes, even energetic ferocious tigers need to go to sleep. Sleep! It's good for you! Author: Mary Logue
