Ages 5 - 9 & Grades 1 - 3
Little Astro is a robot who collects rocks on the moon. But when he goes too far away, he gets left behind. How will he get home by himself?
Meet Little Astro, a robot who finds a special moon rock. When he’s stranded on the moon, he finds a monkey who has also been stranded. By combining their skills, they help each other find a way home. Logan Matthews’ whimsical illustrations pull young readers into space, where they learn even impossible seeming tasks can be solved with friendship and cooperation.
“Using fun-to-read-aloud verse that sounds like Dr Seuss and illustrations that mix Richard Scarry’s bright designs with the whimsy of Mercer Mayer, The I-Wants and the Gimmies offers a spritely tale of finding the joy of giving.
Old-fashioned, fun, and with a good lesson delivery, Taylor Overbey’s colorful story should find a place on every child’s bedtime reading list.”
“With his The I-wants And The Gimmies, Taylor Overbey creates a whimsical story about the importance of sharing and working together. His quirky characters are extremely naughty, face a ridiculous danger and affect a change of heart all without any heavy–handed moralizing.
This is a funny book for parents to enjoy with their youngest children.”
“I found his new book very engaging and well-thought out. The illustrations and the messages he is communicating to the readers through these illustrations flow very nicely and are certainly engaging.
He has been able to express something that is rather important and serious in a fun and at times even funny way. Overall, I found this to be a great children’s book and a fresh alternative to what is currently available in the market. I look forward to seeing the final copy when it gets published and I am certainly getting one for my son!”
