This is one of my favorite stories that fits beautifully in thinking about engineering. The family is trying to get to the water on a hot Summer day, but one thing after another goes wrong. The young engineers come up with some great problem-solving that will make you laugh and wish that their ideas would really work.
Great for school visits too!

A classic-great rhythmic sounds and a rambling adventure. Illistrations are sweet and 1940's countrystyle-if it's good enought to be read on Playschool-you know your onto a winner.

This wonderfully illustrated picture book is very entertaining and great to read aloud.
