See here's the thingny people can't point back to a single pivotal book from their childhood that changed them. I'm lucky enough to have that. This book entranced me with possibilities at a very young age. It made me think that anything was doable if you worked hard enough and could take advantage of the luck that came your way. I must have read it 20 times. It's a simple story, some may say too simple, but I wanted to be Andy Buckram so desperately that I started making all kinds of things out [...]
I love this book.
I read this book when I was very young and never forgot it. Favorite book of all time!
a childhood favorite. a fantastic story about a kid from a small town who makes robots out of scraps.
I loved this book when I was younger! I just wish it wasn't out of print and so hard to find. :(
I cannot wait until my son can read this book. He will love it so much. A junkyard! A boy who makes robots that really work! Roughing it on an island with robots to help out! This is like Baby Island for the boys.
A wonderful, simple tale of invention and adventure. I remember this book and loved reading it again. Too bad it's so hard to find a copy or I would add it to my library.Excellent read for a young adult, but too lengthy as a childrens' book.
Where can I find this book online so I can read this to my grandchildren
There's a great show in here somewhere
One of my first books after the "Golden Book Years". Lots of fun
It’s definitely a book of the era it was written in, women are made to be lower then men. That aside this is a wonderful book about a boy who at the end seems to have grown and realize that life is full of change.
This was an excellent young boy book!
"Great Frogs and Catfish!"I can't remember when I first read "Andy Buckram's Tin Men"—it was "After Caddie Woodlawn" and I was apprehensive when my elementary school librarian put this book into my hands because it was a boy's book and about robots. But this book has stuck into my member for probably two decades at this point and I have been searching and searching and searching for a copy of it to the point where I look for it in every single used bookstore I can find, to the indulgent amusem [...]
One of my all-time favorite stories.What I learned from this book:Goodness matters. Kindness matters. Helping matters. But sometimes, things don't work out the way we want them to.
I found a list of books I read during the summer when I was about 14. This was one of them. I don't remember anything about it, but I read it.
One of my favorite books as a fourth grader in 1976.
One of my favorite books as a kid.
Super weird and certainly a product of its era—yet if I were a 12-year-old boy in 1966 I would love this sucker to DEATH.
