Raves and Reviews

Though simple, the text includes a message about friendship and including others. Sound imagery—plink, clink, beep—engages children’s senses. There is also an opportunity to discuss scientific properties with children, as Og’s clever plan to retrieve the lost cog uses a large magnet. Young makers and creators will be excited by what the characters build at the end of the story.
