Sharkbot Shalom

Sharon Davey
When a shark robot realizes that he's running out of charge, he has to rush through Shabbat preparations. Sharkbot could be any of us. -Kirkus Reviews

Printed Material
Grade Level:

A Shabbat recharge is just what Sharkbot needs. But will he be ready in time?

Get ready for an under water, steam-punk Shabbat! Count down with this cheerful shark robot as he sets the table, stirs the seaweed soup, and braids kelp into challah loaves. You'll want a byte of the food when a stingray brings seagrass cakes and algae sweets. Some pufferfish made a plankton pie!

Sharkbot sweeps the ocean floor

Before his guests swim through the door . . .

'Slime of snail and tail of trout!

My charge is low -- I might run out!'
