This Old Van has  quickly become a favorite in our home! Written by Kim Norman and Illustrated by Carolyn Conahan this book takes you through a road trip adventure of grandparents off to see their grandchild in their old vw bus. The words of the story are catchy and written to the tune of this old man. Thisoldvan2The illustrations are beautiful and fun and beautifully detailed. The first time I read this book to Morgan he was loving finding all the trains with faces. The second time we read it he was singing along with me, ” With a click clack rattle rack” on each page. It was fun to read together and ask questions like, “How many bunnies are there?”, “where is the puppy?” ect. This book made is super easy to get involved with the book rather than just another story to read out loud.

This book is perfect for kiddos of any age as it is fun to read to a child but would also be really fun for them to read to you. This book would make the perfect gift, you can find it Here on amazon where it is currently selling for $7.76 for a hardcover and if you ask me is a steal… GET ON IT 😉
