Get a new book for the family for summer vacation. ROBOT+BIKE=KITTEN appeals to all ages and has two pages in the back for the reader to create their own poems and illustrations.
“From a generation of parents who grew up on Seuss and Silverstein, here comes another timeless children’s book with modern relevance. Mohr inspires our kids to be imaginative, caring, and self-respecting good people. He does this with poignant poetry and unique illustrations sure to spark conversations with your child on many themes. This book will surely be the first of many for Mohr and his own brand of humorous and insightful storytelling."
Brett Dennen, singer/songwriter
"Fun and funny poems that will delight your kids as much as they did mine."
Colin Beavan, author of No Impact Man
"A gorgeous combination of verse and art. Colorful and rib-tickling, all the way through."
Joe "XJ" Kennedy, Award-winning poet
and author of more than 20 poetry books for kids
"Whether you are a kid or an adult or an adult with a kid's mind, this is a book that I would recommend to have for yourself, guests, and for show. The poems are adorable, the artwork is stellar...Its fun and the eco-friendly content is legit."
"Joe Mohr has done an exceptional job with this book. The illustrations and poems are uniquely imaginative. A great book for teachers and parents!"
"Very clever, fun and all with a great message!!! We also love the illustrations (such vibrant colors)!"
"This book is a pure delight for children of all ages! The poems are extremely clever, unique and surprising."
"This book is of course great for children of all ages, but is absolutely a joy for forward thinking adults of all ages as well. Joe Mohr's positive vision for our world brings a powerful reflection of society, urging us all to become thoughtful stewards of our planet. I highly recommend this book for the young ones to plant these progressive seeds of beauty in the minds of our future generations."
Not only do my kids absolutely love this book (ages 5 and 3) because of the clever illustrations, bright colors and word play, I appreciate it for the messages. It is difficult to find a truly creative book that appeals to kids and their parents. I plan to purchase this for all of our future birthday parties to help spread the word of Joe Mohr's excellent work.
I purchased this book for my 4 year old niece and she absolutely loves it. We read some of the poems together and she asked me to read them over and over. The illustrations are fun to look at the poems make her giggle! I am told she has 6 "favorites" that are read each night now at bed time. Great work Joe Mohr!
