I read this book out loud to my students. I read the same book all week, to every class from pre-K through third grade. Usually by the end of the week, I can recite a book in my sleep and I never want to read it again. My First Car Was Red, on the other hand- sure, I can probably recite it in my sleep ("Go!") but I loved it more and more each time I read it. This is a great read aloud book and the pictures are completely charming. I've never had kids quite so riveted to my read-aloud book before. They were silent, hanging on to every word - me, too, no matter how many times I read this book last week.
