My family always grew very attached to our cars. There was the dirt-cheap Subaru hatchback we got for a song from a junkyard and the car I used to learn to drive stick. The trunk lid was busted, so we had a handy stick in the trunk to prop it up while we loaded groceries, or a bale of straw for my sister's rabbits. We called it the “sube” or "the little car." A friend tried to get us to give it an actual name, but whatever w named it is lost to time now. Kim Rogers’ A LETTER FOR BOB is a lovely and heartfelt picture book text about the love a family has for their car. With Jonathan Nelson’s fantastic illustrations, this is going to be so good. I consider it a tribute to our long-lost “little car” as well.
