Happy Thanksgiving – Poem, Kudos and Vote

GOOD NEWS: Ame Dyckman’s BOY + BOT is a FINALIST in the Best Picture Book category for the 2012 Goodreads Choice Awards!

One day, a boy and a robot meet in the woods. They play. They have fun.

But when Bot gets switched off, Boy thinks he’s sick. The usual remedies—applesauce, reading a story—don’t help, so Boy tucks the sick Bot in, then falls asleep.

Bot is worried when he powers on and finds his friend powered off. He takes Boy home with him and tries all his remedies: oil, reading an instruction manual. Nothing revives the malfunctioning Boy! Can the Inventor help fix him?

You helped Ame make the finals, let’s help her WIN! It’s so good, it even inspired a teacher to make a Bot Hat for Ame’s school visit.

Final round voting is now open, and runs through Tuesday, November 27th.

Here is the link to use to vote for Ame.  Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy!

Talk tomorrow,



  1. Oh, wow! I was able to vote for her in the semis, but didn’t realize it was already time for the finals! Thanks, Kathy! Running to vote…
