    Originally posted on Creative Madness Mama.Today's generation of children has different toys from the past days I remember. Everything today is very electronic and active. In some ways there is less imagination at play, but not completely. Doll-E 1.0 is a fun, creative, and attractiv...

    There is so much to love about this book. The main character, Charlotte, is brilliant--like a pint-sized professor. She's always coding or tinkering or fixing the household electronics. When her parents become concerned that she is too plugged in to electronics, they buy her a low-tec...

    This is a delightful read for parents who occasionally think the world should slow down and their kids should take a break from technology and instead play with a low-tech doll. Author/illustrator Shanda McCloskey beautiful portrays the creative and stem-inspired Charlotte (and her tru...

    What does iGen make of esoteric low tech? They frankenstein it into something more suitable to their sensibilities. When Charlotte?s parents hear about the dangers of too much technology for young children, they buy her a doll. At first, she is confused, frustrated, and disappoint...

    Unique combination of the stereotypically feminine and masculine to illustrate how one child can be drawn to both/all gender expressions. ...

    This one leaves me ambivalent. I love Charlotte's creative and inventive spirit, but why does she have to turn the doll into a gadget before she can enjoy it? How about just some imaginative, non-technological play? ...

    I absolutely loved this book! Charlotte is such a lovable, memorable character. She's girly yet geeky, sweet and smart. Her little dog Blutooth is a happy fellow... most of the time. He isn't particularly thrilled when her new toy doll arrives. And neither is Charlotte! But with a ...

    Charlotte is good at tinkering, coding, clicking and downloading. When she gets an ordinary doll she knows she can create something more when she spies the battery pack. In the spirit of taking things apart and seeing how they work, putting things together and rediscovering, this book ...

    Definitely agree that fans of Rosie Revere, Engineer and The Most Magnificent Thing should check out Doll-E 1.o. This book has so much to offer. I love the fact that it has a bit of a graphic novel feel. This feature will draw in a different set of readers. Also, I am a dog lover and a...

    When Charlotte's parents get in the way of her techie world by giving her a doll that has a built in speaker and battery box, they were not expecting her to upgrade Doll-E! My favorite moment in this book is when the doll calls Charlotte Ma-Ma, and Charlotte is aghast! How can she be a...

    I like that Charlotte is tech-savvy, but why can?t the doll just be a doll? I was desperately hoping this would focus a little more on imagination and how that fuels creativity. You know, the actual power of the mind instead of just knowing how gadgets work. Instead of focusing on ?...

    Charlotte works on and creates all sorts of technical gadgets. Her parents worry that she spends too much time on technology so buy her a doll. She isn't sure what to do with it. She discovers it speaks so sets out to program it to say more than "Mama." Her dog gets it and chews up the...

    I love the way this book turns gender stereotypes on their head. Charlotte loved to tinker, code, and fix. Worried she spent too much time in virtual world, Charlotte's Mom bought her a doll. "Charlotte dragged the human-shaped pillow to her room." Not surprisingly, she did...

    Charlotte is a techie, she's always helping her parents with their electronics and even building her own. But her parents worry that she's maybe too techie and wonder if she shouldn't do some good old fashioned pretend play...so they get her a doll to play mom or doctor with. But a "hu...

    It?s techno-trouble for clever Charlotte, the heroine of McCloskey?s DOLL-E 1.0, because she doesn?t comprehend the purpose of her new toy, a doll. With her trusty canine sidekick Blutooth, Charlotte is constantly on call for fixing the gadgets and devices that break and baffle h...

    I really enjoyed this book and my robot-loving girly-girl did too. A cute concept with lots of vocabulary and themes that today's kids will find familiar. The perfect companion to Rosie Revere, Engineer and The Most Magnificent Thing. ...

    Love it! Cute, clever, great STEM selection that kids will read again and again. And the super twist with the two interwoven layers of the parent storyline and the child storyline is primo picture book storytelling! ...

    I love Charlotte! This tech-savvy kid has creativity galore, but when her parents give her a "human-shaped pillow" to play with, she is temporarily flummoxed. An unfortunate incident results in a complete destruction of the doll, which inspires Charlotte to re-build it anew. Her creati...

    Energetic and lively story about a hi-tech-savvy girl who receives a low-tech doll. It's great to see a girl main character with a stem-bent who takes action and finds a way to marry her high tech waves with the low tech gift she's received. Fun puns and tech references. ...

    This book was very cute! The art was very sketch-like and simple, but pleasant to look at. The colours were also nice to look at, with enough white spaces to not make the pages look too busy, or too full of elements. I also really like the two main messages that I took away from this b...

    Fantastic book for STEM lovers and kids who love to tinker with their toys. Charlotte's parents are concerned that she's a little too tech-y, so they buy her a doll. But when she discovers the doll has batteries, she sets out to transform her "plain" doll into a wonderfully unique c...

    "Charlottes's head was always in the cloud." I love this opening line! Techie kid Charlotte at first doesn't know how to play with a regular doll, but soon learns to combine technology with imaginary play. A fun read for everyone! I reviewed an advanced copy of this book. ...

    I think this is a great book to grab the attention of this new techie generation and get them interested in STEM, but I was hoping the doll would be a vehicle to make Charlotte "unplug" and so it was kind of sad seeing that she doesn't have that ability. ...

    Charlotte is a tech-wiz, immersed in her own fully-charged world. When her parents give her a doll, Charlotte isn't sure at first what to do, until she gives the doll an upgrade! My 4 year old daughter ADORED this book. She had me read it to her at least 6 times the first day, and pore...

    This book is so much fun! My 5 year-old and 8 year-old girls LOVE it. (I even caught my 11 year-old son sneaking a read.) The illustrations are fun and appealing, the color palette (the blue hair!) really draws you in right away. It's the kind of book you can't help but pull off the sh...

    Doll-E 1.0 is the first book I've read by Shanda McCloskey. It follows a young girl named Charlotte who is totally plugged in. Everything in her life has a plug, battery, or some other power source. Everything except the new doll her mother has just gifted her. Not accustomed to things...
