Doll-E 1.0 Reviews
I love Charlotte! This tech-savvy kid has creativity galore, but when her parents give her a "human-shaped pillow" to play with, she is temporarily flummoxed. An unfortunate incident results in a complete destruction of the doll, which inspires Charlotte to re-build it anew. Her creation, "Doll-E 1.0," is a proper playmate for Charlotte and her mischievous dog, Blutooth. The author/illustrator uses speech bubbles to good effect and the energetic illustrations match the lively text. Fun book!
Definitely agree that fans of Rosie Revere, Engineer and The Most Magnificent Thing should check out Doll-E 1.o. This book has so much to offer. I love the fact that it has a bit of a graphic novel feel. This feature will draw in a different set of readers. Also, I am a dog lover and a doll lover. So, this book hit many of my sweet spots.
I absolutely loved this book!

Charlotte works on and creates all sorts of technical gadgets. Her parents worry that she spends too much time on technology so buy her a doll. She isn't sure what to do with it.

Charlotte loves to build, tinker, code, and create. She is happy with technology and enjoys fixing things. When she receives a doll as a gift from her mom, she is disappointed until she realizes she can use her tinkering skills to give this doll some life. With the Makerspace Movement being embraced in schools and libraries, this is a timely, adorable picture book that should find room on shelves everywhere. The illustrations are fun and the text is clever. This is a perfect book for all the lit ...more
Such a cute book! I love the illustrations!!
Sometimes you feel like reading a super cute picture book haha 😂😂
Fantastic book for STEM lovers and kids who love to tinker with their toys.
Charlotte's parents are concerned that she's a little too tech-y, so they buy her a doll.
But when she discovers the doll has batteries, she sets out to transform her "plain" doll into a wonderfully unique companion.
The kids LOVED this book and voted to give it 5 stars.
They giggled at many of the illustrations.
