Review:

Author/illustrator and collage artist Scott Menchin has turned the words to legendary folksinger Woody Guthrie's playful and iconic children's song into colorful, interactive play. As a family of cartoon canines set out for a cross-country trip in their wood-paneled convertible, readers encounter pop-up surprises, tabs to pull and lift and "fun facts" on every page. To fully appreciate the book, however, read along with Guthrie's lively original recording of the song at the book's website (www.ridinginmycarbook.com).
