Description:

Doug is a robot. His parents want him to be smart, so each morning they plug him in and start the information download. After a morning spent learning facts about the city, Doug suspects he could learn even more about the city by going outside and exploring it. And so Doug...unplugs. What follows is an exciting day of adventure and discovery. Doug learns amazing things by doing and seeing and touching and listening - and above all, by interacting with a new friend.

Quotes:

Yaccarino documents Doug's journey with simple and appealing art created with brush and ink on vellum and photoshop, capturing the young robot's energy and enthusiasm., Shelf Awareness

This charming title shows the importance of balance between virtual and real-life experiences., School Library Journal

Yaccarino's (All the Way to America) streamline-smooth illustrations - bright blocks of color defined by swooping black lines - conjure a playful contemporary environment; without preaching, he comments smartly on children's screen time and the necessity of outdoor play and exploration., Publishers Weekly

Yaccarino's retro palette and style suit this robot tale to a T. A lively, colorful celebration of unmediated living., Kirkus

The expression of sheer joy as Doug, all widemouthed enthusiasm, scatters a flock of pigeons or plays with a new friend is enough to convince any reader that unscripted learning is still the most satisfying way to plug into the world around us., Booklist
