Kindle Books For Kids: My Daddy's Cool Car Collection

Kids love cars. "My Daddy's Cool Car Collection", by Scott Gordon, is an impressive display of a dad's car collection. This collection includes every vehicle that the dad ever owned. The 3D illustrations provide a visual treat for car enthusiasts of all ages.
At the end of the story, the dad shares the one thing that is more valuable than all his cars combined.

About the Author
Scott Gordon is the author of several children's books, including My Little Pet Dragon, My Crazy Pet Frog, Pigtastic, A Little Book About You, A Pocketful of Dinosaurs, Ninja Robot Repairmen, Happy Healthy Hearts, My Daddy's Cool Car Collection and If I Were A Robot. Currently he is hard at work on his next project: Braedyn Bunny and the Missing Eggs.

Cars, Trucks, Jeeps and Much More
This ebook for children begins with a boy inviting us to visit his dad's car collection. The dad narrates the tour of a very interesting collection of vehicles. The first exhibit in the collection is an old taxi cab. The dad explains that he once drove a taxi for a living. The next vehicle is a tow truck because Daddy towed cars for a living when he was young.

Daddy no longer drives a car because he is very wealthy and rides in one of his limos. The car collection includes antique cars, hot rods, sports cars, race cars, jeeps and other unique and beautiful vehicles.

The story has a very touching ending when the dad shares the one thing that is more valuable than all the cars combined.

My Thoughts
I think the author wrote this book as a "book for boys", but girls will also find this book very entertaining. The colorful 3D illustrations are just amazing. Kids will love the details of these fancy vehicles.

When I worked as a school librarian, children were always asking for dinosaur books and car books. They also liked drawing books. Mr. Gordon has a very good understanding of what kids like to read.

I viewed this ebook on my Kindle 3 (black and white illustrations) and my Kindle for PC Application (color illustrations). The formatting is excellent with a large picture and several lines of text on each page.

The text is written in all capital letters. This is unusual for a children's book but in this case, I think it works. The large text seems to be in balance with the large 3D pictures.

I think the highlight of this book is definitely the 3D illustrations. These pictures look good on the small screen of my Kindle and great on the larger color screen of my PC.  This book will probably inspire older children to do some research on the more extravagant vehicles displayed in the book.

I highly recommend this ebook for kids of all ages. It will work as a read-aloud for pre-schoolers and an independent selection for older children.

My Rating: 5 Stars Out Of 5
