July’s book club selection is The Wild Robot by Peter Brown, an ALA Notable Children’s Book, a New York Public Library Best Books for Kids Pick, and an Entertainment Weekly Best Book of the Year.
When robot Roz opens her eyes for the first time, she discovers that she is alone on a remote, wild island. She has no idea how she got there or what her purpose is – but she knows she needs to survive. After battling a fierce storm and escaping a vicious bear attack, she realizes that her only hope for survival is to adapt to her surroundings and learn from the island’s unwelcoming inhabitants.
As Roz slowly befriends the animals, the island starts to feel like home – until, one day, the robot’s mysterious past comes back to haunt her.
