Cars Rushing! Honking! Zooming!
By Patricia Hubbell
Illustrated by Megan Halsey and Sean Addy
(Marshall Cavendish Children, 2006)
I love the vintage illustrations of Cars Rushing! Honking! Zooming!
This fun picture book is about all sorts of vehicles. And the drivers are not necessarily human!
Told in rhyme, Cars Rushing! Honking! Zooming! features things vehicles do as well as places they go and specific information about them (like the parts of a car).
I enjoyed the feel of this book. Any child who loves things that GO will have fun reading Cars Rushing! Honking! Zooming!
Masking Tape Highways
Materials: toy vehicles, blocks, masking tape
1. Stick masking tape on the floor or carpet (or furniture) to create winding roads on the floor.
2. Use blocks to build homes, businesses, and community features.
3. Drive those vehicles along the roads and use your imagination to pretend you are really in a car. Isn’t that fun?
4. Pull up the tape as soon as you are done playing so it doesn’t stick on the floor!
