Item description for My Car by Byron Barton...

Sam describes in loving detail his car and how he drives it.

Publishers Description

With prose as clean as Sam's the narrator's shiny engine, Byron Barton, the celebrated creator of numerous picture books for very young children, including Trucks, My Bus, and Building a House, explores transportation, the parts of a car, signs and signals, night and day, community, and occupations.

Bright, graphic artwork invites readers to count, name colors and shapes, and follow Sam and his car as they drive through a bustling world from Sam's home in the country to his job in the city. The surprise ending is a gem "For young children intrigued by cars, this book is simply wonderful."--ALA Booklist

Reviews - What do customers think about My Car?

Children's car book  Mar 15, 2008
This is a great book if your child is obsessed with cars as ours is. It explains all the car parts, and is very colorful. It's a cute little book. Very general.
Great first car book!  Sep 27, 2007
My son received this as a gift when he was about 18 months old and absolutely loves it! It is a regular favorite... he loves the graphics and simple story line. He is almost two and loves to recite some of the lines and point out things in the nice, colorful yet simple pictures. Great book for boys!
Superb!  Jul 29, 2007
Our twin toddlers love this book. The simple language and vivid illustrations are excellent.
New Favorite book  Apr 12, 2007
My 17 month old son loves having this book read to him and pretending to read it. He already loves cars, so the subject is great. It has bright colors, the pages aren't too busy, and the words are simple. Great book. We have the trucks book too. We also have the trains book, which he got for a gift and is also great.
My son and husband LOVE this book  Mar 22, 2007
My husband is a "car guy" through and through and he loves to read this book almost as much as my two year old does! They read it at least once a night - sometimes more! It's really adorable. Highly recommended especially for all gear-head mommies or daddies to share with their little boys or girls!
