If I Built a Car, by Chris van Dusen
If you were building a car from scratch, what would you add? Three headlights? Jet engines? A swimming pool, complete with a snack machine and robot driver?
In this fun book, young Jack tells his father exactly what he’d put in a new car.
Filled with a bouncy narration that’s fun to read out loud and illustrations reminiscent of colorful 50s style of cartoons like The Jetsons, this book is wonderful from top to bottom. Make sure to check out the details in the illustrations, as well as Jack’s designs on the endpapers.
If you liked this, don’t miss If I Built a House, where Jack designs his dream home and shares it with his mom! And really, check out everything by Chris Van Dusen. They’re all great books for kids of all ages.
