About the Book

Splash! Splash! Car gets wet and soapy as he goes through the car wash. He's had a big adventure today. His shiny paint got dirtier and dirtier as he drove all over town—first with mud from the construction site, then from exhaust, and finally a flock of birds. At the end of his big day, a bath is just what this little car needs.

Michael Garland's bright and bold art features lots of different vehicles, from diggers to big trucks, making this book just right for young car enthusiasts learning how to read.
