You're reviewing: Little Astro

"Little Astro is a little tale about a little problem… well maybe not that little. You see, Astro, the robot, has been stranded on a remote planet with an astronaut monkey named Darwin. They decide to team up and find a way to get home. Readers are taken on a journey of loneliness, failure and perseverance that ultimately leads to success and joy. All accomplished by their belief in each other. This is a terrific, delightfully illustrated book that provides an important life lesson." —Bill Fischer, Chair Digital Media, KCAD

"Science, Technology, Engineering and Math often applauds failure. But what does that mean to a kid who is stuck and feeling lonely and frustrated? Little Astro gives a glimpse at tackling quirky challenges in a delightfully illustrated way. This book will help young explorers understand pushing through failures to find a solution and understand the process of creative problem solving." —Susan Bonner, MFA, Assistant Professor -- Digital Art and Design, Kendall College of Art and Design
