With prose as clean as Sam's the narrator's shiny engine, Byron Barton, the celebrated creator of numerous picture books for very young children, including Trucks, My Bus, and Building a House, explores transportation, the parts of a car, signs and signals, night and day, community, and occupations.

Bright, graphic artwork invites readers to count, name colors and shapes, and 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. The surprise ending is a gem! "For young children intrigued by cars, this book is simply wonderful."--ALA Booklist

I like the simple text too. Good for preschoolers learning to read. Also has a cool diagram pointing to car parts.

Sam loves his car. He explains on each page what makes his car special. What makes this book even more special is that it shows the inner workings of a car. How it makes a car run. Beautiful read.
