|Behind the book:
One rainy day when my son, Sam, said he had nothing to do, his dad suggested he try lining up his cars across the rug. Sam thought it was a terrific game and before I knew it, there were lines of things all over the house!
“A book remarkable for its thoughtful design, it is especially notable as the author-artist’s first book of her own.”
The Horn Book
“A charming book.”
School Library Journal
“The paintings have a folk art look and are full of homey touches…A focused concept, as precisely executed as Sam’s final stretch to the kitchen.”
