This could be neat to discuss first, next, and last. The timeline of events is clear enough that younger kids could enjoy successfully discussing the order of events in this cute book. ( )

Good vocabulary (squash, chugged). Children can identify the animals. This story is mostly about how not to be selfish about what you will and will not do, why excuses are not helpful and how to work together to get difficult things done. Good conversation starter there! ( )

John Buningham tells the story of how Mr. Gumpy and his friends go for a ride in his motor car. Everything is fine until they get stuck in mud and no one wants to help push the car out. Grades K - 2 ( )
