A Boy and his Bot

This is our new robot friend, "Wallie".
Ben can wind up the robot's "power pack" and it moves around with random starts and turns that startle and excite this little programmer. They play for hours.
They play "Hide and Seek".
They help each other when they malfunction.
"Do you want to go collect pinecones?" Ben asks.
Ben likes to stare him down. Bot always looks away first.
Ben has a favorite book called "Boy + Bot" which he has been requesting lately. It is a great kids book written by Ame Dyckman and illustrated by Dan Yaccarino. I hear him playing out scenes from his book all the time.
"Will you be my friend, Bot?" asks Ben. "Affirmative!" Bot answers.
