My son really enjoyed this book, this is the first Choose Your Own Adventure he's tried. And the first young choose your own adventure I've tried. For a 5 year old it went down really well, we can pick this up at any time and see what different ending we can get to. Highley recommended! I want to start collecting the others in the series, If only there were more.

I remember these books from when I was a child and I know many children get bored of reading the same books. With these there's a different ending depending on what you select as you go through it.

I think my brother was more excited by the books than my nephews as it took him back to when he was a child.

It arrived so quickly too.

A fun read after the typo is corrected 4 Mar. 2009
By Butterfly 3 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It is a fun concept to make your own choices while reading a story and then re-read the story multiple times making different choices and ending up on different adventures. The stories are simple but a fun read for my five year old. There was some frustration with missed opportunities and confusing connections until we figured out that on page 43 where it says "Turn to page 11" it should have been page 12.

Didn't Work for Us - a review of "Your Very Own Robot" 1 April 2008
By aaa-Pam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you aren't acquainted with the format, the "Choose Your Own Adventure" books promise some extra fun by allowing readers the chance to make some decisions and take the story line down one path or another.

In the case of this book there are twelve possible endings. Unfortunately quite a few of them are "sub-standard", even from a child's perspective. [My own sample audience is a 6 year old boy.] In one ending, for example, the robot flies into a big pile of ice cream and the president of the company charges you --you become a defacto character -- $800 dollars for the damage; while in another situation the robot leaves you having to replant a neighbors rose bushes because your robot exclaims, "SORRY! I AM NOT PROGRAMMED TO PLANT ROSE BUSHES." Don't know about you, but we didn't find it all that entertaining.

As to an official Reading Level (aka Accelerated Reading or ATOS) none is listed. But the word level is fairly advanced and at least at the 2nd Grade level. Which makes the silliness probably even less attractive since I'm assuming older children would be a bit more discriminating than than my 6 y.o. boy.

Here's an example of text from page 18 so you can judge the level for yourself:

===============================
"Now I will try pressing your RUN button," you tell him. So you do--and off he runs.

"Terrific!" you cry, and you turn him off before he can run too far.

"Say, maybe if I let you run fast enough, you could take off, like a plane!" you say. "But, of course, I don't know how to fly a plane. So that might be dangerous."

"Besides there a lots of things we could do in the yard. We could build a fort. That might be fun."

But you keep thinking about flying. Should you try it? Or should you build the fort?
===============================

Two Stars ::: Try this one out at the library first. The reading level is fairly sophisticated, but most of the plot endings aren't.

Not great 27 Jun. 2007
By Margaret Durbin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was really looking forward to sharing the choose your own adventures books with my 7 year old nephew. This one was tagged as being for 6-12 year olds. It was extremely boring for the 7 year old, but the 3 1/2 year old thought it was pretty decent. I don't think either of them will pull it off the shelf to read it or have it read. It falls far short of what I remembered.

UPDATE 9/29/2008: The four and a half year old has begun asking to have it read... I think the thrill of being able to choose is a big plus. So for younger pre-readers it's a decent book, it's just not for school age kids.

never ending book 7 Jan. 2014
By Desi Ashby - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I wish there were more books written in this style.My 8 year old loves robots
and the idea of making the book turn out different ways depending on how he
chooses to read it. A great book.
Beautifully illustrated & intriguing for the little ones! 15 Jan. 2013
By M. Robles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I loved Choose your own Adventure books as a kid, and couldn't wait to introduce them to my own children who are 5 & 8. I chose to start with one that had full-color illustrations and this sure did start us off right! It is a beautifully illustrated book, with heavy pages that will stand up to many readings. The children love taking turns picking the adventures while we read at bedtime and are totally blown away that the story can be over, and start again, without having reached the back cover!!!
