The Wild Robot by Peter Brown

The Wild Robot by Peter Brown is a delightful story for young and old. This book is a delightful tale about what might happen when technology (specifically a robot programmed to think and learn) collides with nature.
Roz is washed ashore on an island in her crate when the boat she was being transported in, sinks. The island is inhabited by many creatures, but not one of them is human. They accidentally activate her, and she proceeds to do as she is programmed; interact with her environment and learn to survive in it. She makes all sorts of friends, including a gosling whom she raised after an accident she caused killed his family. But what happens to Roz when the company that built her tracks her to her new island home?
