Inspired by his love of Woody Guthrie's Riding In My Car, award winning illustrator Scott Menchin invites readers on an exciting cross-country road trip with a family of dogs!

This interactive novelty format features pull-tabs, pop-ups, and lift-the-flaps on every page, and makes kids feel like they're really coming along for the ride, visiting some of <_st13a_country-region _w3a_st="on">America's most notable landmarks including the Statue of Liberty, Mount Rushmore, the <_st13a_place _w3a_st="on">Grand Canyon and more!

The entire song will be hosted on www.ridinginmycarbook.com so readers can read and sing along!
