They laughed so hard they fell to pieces.
I put them back together and then
I had to read it to them again!
On its pages a young little reader will find the handful of crazy cars designs each of them sang about in songs of these two great authors.
And although the book text is interesting and funny, the attention of reader will be inevitably immediately directed to the illustrations that have been made over the entire page, with countless details and colors - what makes you want each of them to be increased to the size of the poster in order to beautify your child's room.
Therefore, “Poem-mobiles: Crazy Car Poems” can certainly be recommended for slightly older children in which they’ll enjoy watching the beautiful pictures and reading entertaining text.
Also if you are looking for the ideal gift book for some other preschool children, this book I would definitely recommend to take into your consideration.
If you like the feel and look of a brand new car, with its clean interior, shiny body, strong chassis, oh, and that brand-new car smell, Crazy Car Poems will thrill you, because it has all those features and more. These automobiles rhyme, sing, and beat to a perfect cadence. And Crazy Car Poems are the wave of the future. Forget hybrids, electronics, sonic boom stereos, and cars that park themselves, for these cars need none of that old-fashioned nonsense to drive like a dream. Forget the Smart Car. Get a Mini-Mini-Car.
“I’m in my little motorcar—
Skinny skinny skinny.
I squeeze inside and then I ride
Some more and more and more.
But I don’t brag, for there’s a snag:
I can’t get out the door.Read more ›
The quality of paper this book is printed on and the vibrancy of the illustrations really make this a beautiful, fun book. Definitely recommend to any parent trying to include more poetry in their child's reading, especially for one that is obsessed with moving machines.
The poems are funny and engaging, even for adults (but completely appropriate for young children), and the illustrations are adorable and unique. A great book for kids of all ages.
With hot-water heating
And porcelain seating,
The Bathtub is speeding--
A white limousine
That's sudsy with bubbles.
Forget your car troubles.
Its purpose? It doubles
By keeping you clean!

Isn't that delightful? I love it. Of course, I'm a lot more partial to baths than to cars, so that could explain why this is one of my particular favorites:>) But if you like dragons or dinosaurs or high heels or paper clips or just about anything, there is a related poem in this book!
