Excerpt from RDF Books Review (2021)

“Robotastic!” really hits the mark on so many levels. The text and illustrations are near perfect, and the story is well crafted. It’s an easy read for parents looking for a story that wraps in creativity, friendship, and kindness. Friendship should come in all shapes and sizes. Author Sari Karplus delivers this message in a soft way through superb storytelling. My daughter (5) adored the book and hopes that we get to see more adventures of Alf and Jake! This is an “instant classic,” and give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ stars! This book truly is, “Robotastic!”

Excerpt from Brooke Vitale Review (2021)

Robotastic by Sari Karplus is a fantastic tale of finding friends in the most unlikely of places. I went into this story thinking it was just going to be a fun story about a boy and his robot, and was pleasantly surprised to see it take a deeper,more meaningful turn. For a society that has become so reliant on technology, it’s a refreshing change to see a book ABOUT technology turn so personal. A great read or the littlest robot fans out there (and really, aren’t we all robot fans) and for kids who are feeling a little isolated and need reassurance that their new bestie is on the way! I really loved this book, and I’m sure you will, too!

Robotastic! Jake and the Giant Beach

Excerpt from Aidyn's Books Review (2022)

The whole book was fun! Surprisingly fun!! And this is why I say surprisingly:There are so many gems and teachable moments on the pages. However, the author conveys them in such a way that it doesn’t get in the way of a pleasurable and entertaining storytime for the reader.

Excerpt from Brooke Vitale Review (2021)

Jake and the Giant Beach is another great entry in the *Robotastic *series by Sari Karplus. A tale of compromise, coding, and problem-solving, kids are sure to enjoy this STEAM-based book, and may even start shouting out their own suggestions for how Jake can fix Hamilton B. But it’s friendship that reigns supreme here, with Jake going out of his way to make sure that Hamilton B has what he needs for a day at the beach and isn’t left out of any of the sandy fun!
