This paperback picture book features fresh, quirky poems by two picture-book poetry veterans which explore practically every kid's favorite topic: CARS!

The U.S. Children's Poet Laureate and an award-winning children's poet join their prolific forces in this picture book of poems about cars. But they're not just any cars: there's the "Sloppy-Floppy-Nonstop-Jalopy" ("So unique there is no copy"); the Bathtub Limosine ("With hot water heating / And porcelain seating"); and the "High Heel Car." Each of the thirteen quirky, inventive poems will speak directly to the imaginations of children, as will Holmes's high-concept, detail-filled illustrations.

The POEM MOBILE is for a boy from five to seven years of age. The creative poems tell stories of cars made from hot dogs, shoes, bath tubs, fish, paper, and dragons, and more creative ideas! The poems are delightful, funny, and "child silly." The pictures are animated, colorful and support the various poems. AS I read the poems orally, I was amazed at the vocabulary development for the child. I highly recommend this for the mental development for a young boy, but the book also uses a lot of creativity to stimulate the young child's imagination!I would also recommend this author's other books.
