Beep Beep, Vroom Vroom!

Beep Beep, Vroom Vroom!
by Stuart J. Murphy

We’ve been working on patterns lately: recognizing, recreating and extending.  My son loved this book!  Bright, colorful cars and fun car noises were definitely the best way to keep his interest in patterns!  The book opens with a little girl watching her older brother play with his cars.  When he is called away to do his chores he lines up all the cars in his particular pattern on the shelf (ABC ABC).  After he leaves the room his little sister takes the opportunity to beep beep, vroom vroom and crash crash the cars.  The story introduces the patterns AABBCC, AABCCB, and CBA CBA as the parents try to help the little girl put the cars back before her brother returns.  The last couple pages of the book give ideas for how to use the patterns in the book, how to look for patterns in everyday life and other books that explore this concept.
