Musical Robot Author Visit Kit


PreK–K, 1–2, 3–5

Musical Robot was a popular music act before they were award-winning co-authors (with the illustrious David A. Carter). Their book has garnered a starred review from Publishers Weekly, and gold medals from multiple parenting publications. The musical duo’s long running interactive performances are a perfect vehicle for their beloved book.

Description of the Author’s Presentation

Flyabout! (named after Musical Robot’s eponymous recently released album) is a 45 minute interactive collection of songs and stories that get kids up and moving, using all their muscles, including the most important one: their imagination. The opening song, which is the source material for their award winning book, gets the rocking and rolling off on the good foot, garnering dance moves and laser beams from kids age 3-10. In schools, the interactive concert is adapted to include exchanges of ideas and instruction in reading and creativity.

Virtual Visits

Musical Robot is happy to drop in for a 20-minute virtual visit and Q&A with book groups and library groups that have read at least one of their books using Skype or iChat.

AV and Tech Needs for In-Person Visits

All Musical Robot requires is a power outlet not more than 50 feet from the performance space.
