Rosie works at the Red Robot Room at the robot factory. She is responsible for putting the red robots together. Just as Rosie was about to grab a red robot leg out of the box, a racecar ran into the box, turning the whole box of robot legs into rubble! “Oh no! I can’t use any of these red robot legs!” Randal from the racecar factory had a remote control for the racecar. Randal ran to the window. “I’m so sorry Rosie! That racecar must not be ready yet. I’ll have to fix it!” “Rats,” said Rosie. “I really need red legs!” She radioed her friend Ralph. “Do you have any red robot legs?” Ralph replied, “I don’t have any red robot legs, but I have blue robot legs.” That gave Rosie an idea. Rosie raced from room to room picking up different-colored robot parts. She grabbed yellow arms, a green body, really-long blue legs, and a round orange head. She took her box of parts back to the red room, ripped a piece of tape, and wrapped it around the arms to connect it to the body. She took a step back to admire her robot. It was a . . . RAINBOW ROBOT!!! “I will call you Robert!” “Meep moop reep roop. I. Am. Robert. The Rainbow Robot.” Rosie realized she made something really special—her new friend, Robert. The End. R!
