OMGOsh! You guys are the best!! Thank you all SOO much!!

So sorry for the delay getting on here to thank you all. I've been in the mountains of Va. today. Hubby and I are running our son's route for a few days so he can have some time off. We are on vacation and have had a few already this year. Our son hasn't had any time off and hasn't been a bread man long enough for a vacation so we insisted on us running his so he can go to the beach. Family first, always. Even when it's an important day like a book birthday and the cell signal where you'll be stinks.

V. he actually did arrive a bit early. Some bookstores already have him on shelves and amazon has been shipping for about a week. :)

Kell! Thank you soo much!! Right back at 'ya.  :hug

Now, I am home and ready to celebrate!!  :yeah

I just saw this new review up on Amazon from SLJ!! I am super happy with it!! 

From School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—After a busy day at the track, one little race car gets ready for bed. He visits the Tickle-and-Wash for a shower and shine, stops for a fill-up at the Guzzle-and-Gulp, and chooses a bedtime book from the Speedy Reads Library before curling up with his wrench for the night—inexplicably in the middle of a field rather than in a garage. As he drifts off to sleep, the little car dreams of winning his next big race. The story unfolds in rhythmic four-line stanzas and is composed with a calm, soothing tone that makes this perfect for reading aloud before bed. Largely bathed in a cool nighttime palette of greens, blues, and violets, Mottram's colorful cartoon illustrations bring charming expressions to anthropomorphized vehicles and tools. VERDICT This sweet bedtime offering is ideal for vehicle and auto-racing enthusiasts.—Lauren Strohecker, McKinley Elementary School, Abington School District, PA
