About the Book

With bright, clear art and prose as clean as Sam the narrator's shiny engine, this preschooler-friendly book explores transportation, the parts of a car, signs and signals, night and day, community, and occupations.

Bright, graphic artwork invites readers to count, name colors and shapes, and follow Sam and his car as they drive through a bustling world from Sam's home in the country to his job in the city. Named to numerous “best of the year” lists, My Car features vehicles, signs and signals, and a surprise ending. "For young children intrigued by cars, this book is simply wonderful."—ALA Booklist

Byron Barton is the celebrated creator of numerous picture books for very young children, including Trucks, My Bus, and Building a House.
