Rattletrap Car

Rattletrap CarWritten by Phyllis Root, Illustrated by Jill Barton


It is hot, hot, hot! And Poppa wants to take the kids to the lake. Junie brings a beach ball. Jake brings a surfboard. Baby brings a paddle boat. And Poppa brings razzleberry dazzleberry snazzleberry fizz. The rattletrap car “doesn’t go fast, and doesn’t go far” when it begins to fall apart! Will they make it to the lake in their rattletrap car? Rattletrap Car is a favorite read aloud. You won’t be disappointed!

    This was one of my favorites to read to my own children when they were younger. Thank-you for reminding me about it! I’ll be adding it to my read aloud list for school.
