TWINKLE, TWINKLE LITTLE CAR

A little red car beeps good night to all of his four-wheeled friends in this fresh take on the classic song, “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.”

Twinkle, twinkle, little car,
how you love to travel far.
Now it’s time to go to bed.
But you want to drive instead.

It’s time for Little Car to go to sleep, but he isn’t tired yet! So he cruises around town saying goodnight to all of his friends, from the tractors in their shed to the buses and taxis in town to the cranes and diggers at the construction site. Finally exhausted, Little Car putt-putts home where at last his beep-beep dreams begin.

Bedroom garages outfitted with this little auto are sure to be sites of requests for repeated readings.

YOU'RE MY BOO

In a sweet rhyming ode to unconditional love,  Kate celebrates the silly ups and downs of life with a little one.Introducing an adorable fox family, where the older brother is sweet…and a bit of a stinker. But whether he gets along (or doesn’t) with his baby sibling, whether he is helpful (or not) to his family, or whether he behaves (or doesn’t) when it’s time to settle down, his Mama is always right there to reassure him that, “No matter what you do, you will always be my boo.”
