This is a cute book to read if you are studying onomatopoeias! And the illustrations are so colorful.

This is one of my favorite stories that fits beautifully in thinking about engineering. The family is trying to get to the water on a hot Summer day, but one thing after another goes wrong.

Great for school visits too!
