If you have a budding engineer or a car enthusiast, don’t miss out on If I Built a Car by Chris Van Dusen. Much like The Questioneers series, this book encourages kids to think outside the box and not limit their creativity.
The fun rhyming scheme highlights the whimsical fun in these pages. Young Jack feels like his family vehicle could use some improving, so he starts designing his dream car. You and your child can enjoy all the fine features he plans to install, all without leaving your couch.
Maybe your child prefers to dream about architecture, in which case don’t miss Chris Van Dusen’s other titles, including If I Built a House and If I Built a School. Both showcase the same delightful rhymes and fanciful ideas.
If I Built a Car makes great inspiration for kids looking to build their own dream vehicle. Pair it with some art materials or a cardboard box car sticker kit for a great gift. Or encourage kids to draw, describe, or create their own dream car for a lesson that combines engineering, creativity, and hands on learning. Whether you read it or incorporate other activities, you can’t go wrong steering young minds towards this fun tale.
