The Book

This is a sweet story about a little boy and a robot who are exchanging a dialogue about what friendship is all about.  The robot asks the boy if he would like to be his friend.  The little guy replies no because robot is not human but only a tin can.

The robot then proceeds to show that he is able to perform many human things like play music, do math and even bake a cake to name just a few of his accomplishments.  The boy, although impressed, points out that the robot has no brain or heart therefore disqualifying him and bringing him back down to tin can status.  Oh my, how does robot respond to those accusations and prove he is worthy of being the boy's friend? 

" I Am Not A Tin Can!"  encourages kids to ponder  the qualities that does make a good friend. The illustrations are kid relatable and the story is encapsulated in speech bubbles which kids will really like.  

 Valuable life lessons are learned for both robot and the little boy. The little boy learns not to judge and be open to acceptance and the robot experiences happiness as his offer of friendship is ultimately accepted.  I love this heartfelt story as it offers a chance to discuss empathy, kindness, caring and what it takes to become a good friend.  I highly recommend this story.

Barroux strives to create unusual artwork, and when creating picture-book art, he always tries to surprise the little kid that’s inside of him.

He has illustrated and, in some instances, written numerous books for children for various publishers, including Blue Apple Books, Running Press, Simon & Schuster, Viking and Kids Can Press.
