Goodreads Summary
When Scott builds a bot, a bippity-bot, sparks fly . . . and his entire classroom goes wild. Before long, fiery ants and carnivorous plants, a freaky frog, a big-bellied boa, and an exploding "volcano" have wreaked total havoc. Can Scott's bot, which started it all, manage the mess? Cheers for the handy hero! A cumulative story with fun that grows and grows and GROWS.

My Thoughts
A "House that Jack Built" for the technology age! This cumulative story will have kids laughing, cringing and squealing as they watch the antics happening on Science Day that all start with the Robot that Scott built. From fiery ants and carnivorous plants to a boa constrictor and a vinegar volcano-this book is packed with fun! 

Agnese Baruzzi's digital illustrations are done in bold colors. The displays vary from full page illustrations to various oval shaped pictures on a page. All of the illustrations create a sense movement and excitement as Science Day accidents happen one after the other. 

The author uses some sophisticated vocabulary. Young readers will have the opportunity to learn words such as:

I would recommend The Bot That Scott Built to children in grades K-3.
