OMazing Kids Book Review: “Raybot: Every Robot Needs A Friend” by Adam F. Watkins

Check out this fun new addition to the OMazing Kids library…. Raybot: Every Robot Needs a Friend by Adam F. Watkins!

Raybot doesn’t have a best friend. Actually, he doesn’t have any friends at all. After learning that puppies make good best friends. Raybot decides to go find one…. but what does a puppy look like? Raybot has never seen one before. All he knows is that they go “bark!” And where does a robot find himself a puppy? The country? The jungle? Deep in the ocean? Somewhere in the world there must be an animal that goes “bark!”

I love the cool full-page illustrations, lots of opportunities for vocabulary, animal sounds, inferences and more! The book is also full of lots of opportunities for kids yoga: robot, gate, cross crawl hike, horse, goat, chicken, cow, pig, gyan mudra looking glasses, duck, bear, moose, goose, beaver, hippo, tree, giraffe, elephant, lion, monkey, lazy eights vines, whale, penguin, seal, shark, fish, waterfall, snake, parrot, puppy.

Robot-Themed Kids Yoga Lesson Plan Ideas

Robot Kids Yoga Lesson Plan Ideas

One of the most frequent requests on OMazing Kids has been for “robot-themed” kids yoga lesson plan ideas.  I have searched for “robot theme kids yoga ideas” several times. There is alot more for a “space theme” than for “robots” but here’s what I found:

* Robots Slither by Ryan Ann Hunter [picture book with the following opportunities for yoga: cobra, bug, chair, bed, fish, whale, boat, rocket, star, tree, cat, skateboarder (warrior 2), breath of fire, dinosaur stomps, cross-crawl hike, up dog, down dog]

* Lots of Bots! by David A. Carter [pop-up picture book with the following opportunities for yoga: helicopter, cat, cow, mountain, vacuum cleaner breath, wiggle bot yoga freeze dance, washing machine, toothbrush, woodchopper, hip-hop robot dance, boat, treasure chest, acro-bots (any acro-yoga partner activities that would be safe for those kids ages & abilities)]
