Absolutely loved it. Any grandparent that few up in the 60’s and 70’s is going to fall in love with This Old Van. The bright colorful pictures and throwback sayings with capture grandparent and tot attention. It’s great. This is more than a simple counting book. It’s an adventure with counting. There is a rhythm to the words which should have a child almost reading along. This story is magical fun that will be read over and over again.
Gramps and Granny have received a letter from their grandson. It’s an invitation and they are told to not be late. They jump into their old van and are on their way. Along their way they pass many things. Will they be late? And, what is the invitation for? It’s a fun and exciting trip to find out.
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,
Take a rollicking ride in This Old Van, a joyful take on the classic children's counting song. As the colorfully painted vintage vehicle, driven by a really cool pair of grandparents, rolls down the highway, it passes one train, two bulldozers, three tractors, and four semis, right up to ten muddy motorbikes. And along the way, luggage flies off, horns honk, and the hurrying van zigs and zags—till it arrives at its destination JUST IN TIME! You won't be able to resist singing every fun verse out loud.
