Top Customer Reviews
Hot Rod Hamster combines rhyming description words with the interactivity of asking the reading what things are their favorite or which item they'd choose. Both aspects made the book fun and entertaining. We did a lot of pretend while reading this one.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The words are catchy and engaging ("Great day, grin day, build a car to win day") and the story is uniquely entertaining (A hot rod for a hamster? Who would think it would be so fun?). My boys like to say the words along with me and the race at the end is always greatly anticipated. They also like the "What would you choose?" parts where they can pick what they would want for a hot rod. I don't buy kids books unless I love them (or my kids do and I can tell it's a good book), and this one's a keeper.
