Family Book Club: "COG" by Greg Van Eekhout (Chapters 1 - 11) 
Van EekHout

Welcome to Family Book Club! This is an exciting club for families who love to read and is appropriate for ages 8-15. The books chosen are always within the third to sixth grade level but both younger and older kids have enjoyed them! If your child is younger, I encourage the family to read the book aloud together or listen to the audiobook (if available)!

This month we are reading “COG” by Greg Van Eekhout. Cog (short for Cognitive Development) looks like a normal kid but is actually a robot. When he gets damaged and is returned to the lab for repairs, he discovers his creator has disappeared. With the help of four robot friends, Cog sets out on a mission to find her. Genre: SCIENCE FICTION.

Chapters 1 - 11
1. What is your favorite biofuel (food)?
2. What do you think Cog’s shopping experience taught him?
3. Do you think uniMIND is creating good or bad technology?
4. Take a guess –what is the X-module?
5. The scientists at uniMIND have created Cog, given him intelligence and self-awareness, but do not give him much respect. He does not want his brain removed but Nathan will not listen. Is this fair even though he is a robot?
6. Have you ever done a food competition? If so, how did you feel afterward?
7. Do you think Gina is at the Tower? 
 
Next week read chapters 12-22!
