"What do we get for
driving far?
A crusty, dusty, dirty car.
Now are we
to get it clean?
The bathtub?
Or the washing machine?"

Bring your car to The Scrubbly Bubbly Car Wash. In cascading verse and bold pictures, Irene O'Garden and Cynthia Jabar will soap it and rinse it and mop it and dry it. When you drive out, your car will sparkle and shimmer, glisten and glimmer, arid you'll be chanting the catchy refrain.

Roll up your windows and get ready for the wash of a lifetime!

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-This effervescent picture book features bouncy rhymes and frothy artwork in cotton-candy hues. When faced with "A crusty, dusty, dirty car," two enthusiastic siblings and their father know just where to go. Once inside the car wash, the children describe the sights and sounds that make it so appealing. The language is filled with tongue-twisting alliteration and quick rhythms that echo the even pace of the machinery, as "Soapy floppy brushes mop/from our tires to our top" and "Steamy sprays beyond the brushes/rinse us down in luscious rushes." Throughout the story, descriptive, rhyming phrases are added, culminating in a buoyant final sentence that makes a great ending. Infused with vivid colors and swirling textures, the stylized artwork has a modern, upbeat look. Bubbles float throughout the pages; the rounded faces and features of the children accentuate these circles, while the long, angular shape of the car provides an interesting contrast. Pair this with Sandra Steen and Susan Steen's Car Wash (Putnam, 2001) for two different views from the inside of a favorite destination.
