My Car by Byron Barton


My Car by Byron Barton

The award-winning My Car is a multi-concept preschool masterpiece, and this 8x8 paperback edition will provide hours of fun. With prose as clean as Sam's shiny engine, Byron Barton deftly explores such ideas as transportation, signs and signals, night and day, and occupations. Bright, graphic artwork invites readers to count, to name colors and shapes, and to 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. Named to numerous best of the year lists, My Car features vehicles, signs and signals, and a surprise ending.
