Editorial Reviews

This book has FN 4 KDS written all over it.

— Quill and Quire

Hours of fun for the whole family ... This is one of those titles that libraries should have "just because."

— School Library Jouranl

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.

— Canadian Materials

An appealing book of games and facts ... a unique addition to a juvenile collection of books dealing with games.

— Resource Links

Just right for holiday road trips.

— Publishers Weekly

A quick, fun read, and along the way youngsters and adults will pick up bits of information too... Recommended.
