The Way Cool License Plate Book is a quick, fun read, and along the way youngsters and adults will pick up bits of information too.... Although The Way Cool License Plate Book will principally be a book for recreational reading, teachers could use it for curricular purposes as well. For example, an English or History teacher might share some of the book's vanity plates and then ask her/his students to create the vanity plates that would belong to fictional characters from literature or real historical figures. Recommended.
An appealing book of games and facts ... a unique addition to a juvenile collection of books dealing with games.
