School Library Journal - 03/01/2020 Gr 1–3—Inventor and rock star Layla and her three robot friends are excited about their upcoming performance at their local amusement park. A wrench is thrown into their plans when they learn that the park is going to be closed for good! Rather than dwell in disappointment, Layla and the bots launch into problem-solving mode. They engage in an inquiry-based process to determine why people are no longer coming to the park. Then, Layla and the bots collaborate to design new park features to meet the needs of customers. This transitional chapter book is ideal for emergent or early fluency readers. It includes charming illustrations to assist with decoding, and interesting STEM themes. VERDICT Though not essential, this bright, inventive title would make a nice addition to a library's early chapter book collection.—Tiffany Davis, Mount Saint Mary College, Newburgh, NY - Copyright 2020 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
