REVIEWSDAY TUESDAY: A Review of Sue Fliess' Calling All Cars

by Sue Fliess
Illustrated by Sarah Beise
Sourcebook/Jabberwocky, 2016

Calling All Kids - be sure to check out Calling All Cars, a fun and active picture book by Sue Fleiss, with a subject matter that will definitely appeal to boys and colors and cute furry animals that will definitely appeal to girls!

But that's not all, with it's catchy rhyme, it's quick and easy for parents to read AND even simple enough for the beginning reader to start picking up the words and reading to the parent!

Big cars, small cars, let's call all cars! 

The author and illustrator take us on a visually engaging ride from the city to the beach, to the mountains, into a traffic jam, past a circus and more until it's finally time to park in the garage. Because at the end the cars go to bed, this even makes a great bedtime book.

 Sue Fliess is the author of many books, including Shoes for Me, A Dress for Me, Too Many Trucks and MORE!  Please check back HERE at My Word Playground for a review of her new book, A Fairy Friend!

REVIEWER NOTE: This book was so fun and the art so entertaining that Kayla and I challenged ourselves to make a replica of one of the cars out of construction paper scraps. It was a fun, quick and easy activity. Please consider doing this activity with your child so they can make their favorite car! All you need is a pair of scissors, constructions scraps, glue-stick and paper fastners for the wheels.

And for an added activity be certain and watch the absolutely adorable trailer for the book, here:
