To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
We first got this book from the library and loved it so much that we had to buy a copy for our grandson. The book explains critical thinking in an entertaining way that children can understand. My husband thinks it should be in every kindergarten class.
Es un buen libro para aprender a diferenciar desde pequeños lo que son sus opiniones y lo que son los hechos. Creo que aun no está editado en español pero lo compré en inglés porque me pareció muy bueno.
This is a good book for understanding facts and opinions! My daughter loved it so much that we read it for almost two weeks, every night at bed time. And she said her teacher just needs it for Christmas. I agreed!
I like the use of robots, and how the aid of stopping the arguments happened. Which aided in a conversation of how we wish stopping arguments was easy as it was for the robots.
Knowing the difference between facts and opinions is important! This can aide in reducing friends or cousins arguing. And helping parents calm down arguments based in opinions - so friends and cousins can get along again.
Easy reading for those how can easily read. Moderate for those learning to read.
This is an awesome book. It made me smile. It does more than use robots to teach about facts and opinions. It also teaches about respecting opinions so children can learn how to get along even if you share different opinions. It is very timely, and is good to teach children reasoning skills when they need to make a claim for an essay or CER. The robots are fun and I enjoyed the illustrations. The text is very interactive and entertaining. This book has many uses that I can't recommend it enough.
Wish they would’ve just stuck to facts and opinions and left out the part that talks about what to do when you don’t have enough information “oh what about this.. we need to wait because we don’t have enough information...” and then a few pages later “oh remember when we asked you about this.. now we got the missing part and now we know...” I found this part completely unnecessary, and it’s confusing for the kid.
Three year old daughter. She LOVES this book. But not as much as me. The author focuses on three critical areas: 1. Facts, 2. Opinions, 3. Waiting to judge without having all the information. With the influx of children's books that are teaching adult opinions as if they are facts, this is a shining light in a dark valley.
Do your students know the difference between a fact and an opinion? It’s not always as simple as it sounds. Michael Rex is trying to make this concept easier for kids in the book Facts vs. Opinions vs. Robots. This book is both interactive and informative. I think it would make a great addition to the classroom or school library!
