Drones and Flying Robots

Children's Book and Media Review, Apr 2019

Drones will never be able to take the place of human beings because they do not have thoughts and feelings. But drones have proven themselves to be able to do things that not even people can do. Behind every drone is the mind of a scientist. It takes knowledge in engineering, programming, electronics, and much more to be able to understand the inner workings of a drone. This book strives to inform the reader of the background and the future of drones. Surprisingly, the concept of robotics has been in the picture since the 1800s, and the technology will only become more advanced from here on out.

This fascinating read is one that will be of great interest to young readers who are interested in science and engineering. There are four short chapters that provide a look into the background, future, and logistics of drones. The material is easy to understand and very informative without being too deep or overwhelming for the intermediate age group. There are also real life photographs included instead of illustrations, which makes for a more clear view of these exciting machines. Drones have an important place in our world today. Whether for work or for play, drones are here to stay.
