If I built a car, it'd be totally new!

Here are a few of the things that I'd do. . . .

Young Jack is giving an eye-opening tour of the car he'd like to build. There's a snack bar, a pool, and even a robot named Robert to act as chauffeur. With Jack's soaring imagination in the driver's seat, we're deep-sea diving one minute and flying high above traffic the next in this whimsical, tantalizing take on the car of the future. Illustrations packed with witty detail, bright colors, and chrome recall the fabulous fifties and an era of classic American automobiles. Infectious rhythm and clever invention make this wonderful read-aloud a launch pad for imaginative fun.

Once a month I visit a local elementary school to read to first- and second-grade classes. Before each visit I buy new books I think the kids will enjoy. A few months ago I picked up "If I Built a Car" to read to the classes. The kids loved the story and were completely entertained by the illustrations. Ever since my first reading of this book, they've asked me to bring it back for each visit. It's definitely a hit with the kids, and I thoroughly enjoyed it myself!
