The Little Crooked Bookshelf - Cover Reveal RACE CAR DREAMS

Today on the Little Crooked Bookshelf: A COVER REVEAL for RACE CAR DREAMS! And author Sharon Chriscoe is here to tell us why kids (and grown-ups) are going to love this book...


RACE CAR DREAMS
by Sharon Chriscoe
illustrated by Dave Mottram

Available September 13, 2016
Running Press Kids

What it's all about...
“RACE CAR DREAMS is about a little race car who’s getting ready for bed. As his lights blink on and he rolls off the track, he heads for the Tickle-and-Wash for a bath, the Guzzle-and-Gulp for a nightcap, and the Speedy-Reads Library for a bedtime story . . . and soon he’s dreaming sweet dreams of winning first place!”

My favorite line(s)…
“Hmm… that’s a tough one since I love them all. But I have to say my favorite lines are, He’s sleepy and full and ready to read. He chooses a book that’s all about speed. Those lines make me smile every time I read them: even little race cars love a good bedtime story! Plus, the illustrations for that page are adorable!”

Why kids will love it…
“Kids will love the colorful illustrations, the characters, and the super cute race car. They will have fun seeing the little race car get ready for bed, just like them!”

Why grown-ups will love it…
“Grown-ups will love the soothing bedtime rhythm that will leave their little ones drifting happily off to dreamland.”

Thanks, Sharon! Parents are going to want to race right out and get this one when it releases in September—including cottager, Kara LaReau, whose little boy is crazy about cars!
