What’s the difference between a fact and an opinion? Sometimes, it can be hard to tell them apart. Facts vs. Opinions vs. Robots is a new picture book. It teaches kids about facts and opinions. The book uses robots to show the difference between the two.

Michael Rex wrote and illustrated the book. In it, he asks questions of the reader. “Are the robots fighting?” is one of them. “I wanted to make sure that the pictures could be used to check the facts,” Rex told TFK.
