Young twelve year old Roble couldn’t be happier as he finishes typing the last few codes to bring KidTech the robot to life. Roble has spent months working on his robot and, even at such a young age, already has aspirations of working for Microsoft when he grows up. He and his family enjoy KidTech as they await their father’s return from work. Technology is an inescapable part of today’s world. A world where children embrace every new gadget with zeal- often to the misunderstanding of their parents. Roble and his family embrace this, strengthening his love of technology. With a sharp mind and the ability to create his very own robot, Roble shows us that there truly are no limits to what we can accomplish. Roble and the Robot is a story of ingenuity, and the overwhelming desire of children to learn and grow. Abdirahman Ahmed weaves a tale of wonder and excitement as he goes into the lives of a young Somali family living in Midwest America. With Roble and the Robot he shows the reader that, despite any cultural differences we as people might have, there is the natural, universal sharing of dreams among children. In the end, we are all the same.
