Bright bold artwork and lots of gorgeous cars–and one tractor!–star in this playful board book about a car wash for babies and toddlers. 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 a construction site, then from exhaust, and finally from 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.
