Kid's Book of the Week: Hot Rod Hamster


hot-rod-hamsterGoing green just got a lot more fun with a trip to the junkyard with a hamster hot on the trail of his perfect hot rod.

A new picture book from Newberry Honor author Cynthia Lord, Hot Rod Hamster came roaring into our hearts, and places first in the line-up for book of the week.

A fun tromp through the junkyard to reclaim old parts for a new car becomes an adventure in adjectives with all the choices that abound for Hamster’s new car. Does he want coil parts, flat parts, gleaming this and that parts? How about round parts, straight parts, funny out of date parts?

Involving the reader in the choice for Hamster’s new hot rod, the story carries kids along to the real action – the race! Great for kids who love anything that goes vroom, vroom, the Hamster hero is a welcome change from the dogs and cats of average kiddie book fare.

Buy it for kids three and up at Amazon – it hits shelves today.
