Roly the Robot is happy that Billy and Emily figure out how to communicate with her.

Bot Basics Excerpt:

Light filled the living room as the curtains opened. The little robot charging on the table opened her eyes. Feeling refreshed and full of energy, Roly slid off the charger. She hoped the kids had time to play today. Roly wanted to learn more.

The little robot looked over to the quiet tablet, and then towards the sound of laughter spilling out of the hallway. From the sound of it, Roly figured the happy kids were coming her way. As she listened to Billy and Emily talking, the little robot looked back at the tablet, still sitting peacefully. Roly wished she could understand what the kids were saying without a translator.

Billy and Emily rushed over to the table. Billy picked up the tablet and said, “Good morning, Roly!” as he typed.

Roly smiled as the tablet translated his greeting and then she replied, through the tablet, “Good morning!”

Billy looked at his sister and said, “Wouldn’t it be great if we could talk directly to Roly and Roly could understand us, without this tablet?”
