I am not a hippie at all, but I do think that VW Vans are super cute. I think I could have had a good time with the colors and all of the hippie time, but anyways.  I was excited to review the book, This Old Van by Kim Norman.  Please tell me that I am not the only one that started singing THIS OLD MAN as soon as I read the words...  
If you are like me and the This Old Man song popped in your head when you read the title of the book, you might be like me and have a hard time READING the book.  I tried and tried, but every time I did, it came out as a song!   


Here is one part of the book:
This old van, she passed one, 
shining in the rising sun.

With a click clack rattle rack,
ready for some fun,
this old van says,
“GOOD-BYE, ONE!


Each page of the book has colorful illustrations and cute sing -songy text to go with it.  Join along with the riders of the van as they take a fun trip around.  Read the book to see where they end up!  We really enjoyed it (I read it to Broxton for part of his nightly reading!)

  1. The illustrations look like Stephen Gammell. I only know because I talk about his work in one of my classes. I'll have to look this illustrator up.
