Robots may seem new, but their roots trace back more than 2000 years. Today, we have more robots than ever before. They work in factories, cook our meals, and even perform surgery. As robots become more like humans, what new changes will they bring to our world? Take a look inside White Lightning Nonfiction, a hi-lo nonfiction series for students in the middle grades. Mature, high-interest topics pull in readers and engage them with interesting information; full-color photographs and illustrations; detailed graphic elements including charts, tables, and infographics; and fascinating fact boxes.
