With dad playing the role of a car, Mitchell’s nighttime routine starts with inspecting the tires (dad’s feet) and checking the engine (dad’s belly), before hopping into the driver’s seat (on dad’s shoulders). After cleaning the spotty windshield (dad’s glasses), Mitchell and his car zoom around the house on their way to Mitchell’s bed. Sometimes Mitchell does a little extra maintenance before he takes off, and sometimes the car conks out before Mitchell’s ready to stop, or puts it’s foot down when Mitchell tries to take things too far (no fill-up—cookies—right before bedtime), but all-in-all, Mitchell is one happy camper ... er, driver, in Hallie Durand’s warm, funny, spirited picture book about a parent and child engaged in imaginary play. (Ages 2–5)
