Saturday at the Garage

Review by Cheriee Weichel in Library Matters

If you are searching for descriptive language as mentor text, look no further. I’ve read this at least three times and each go round I find more of Nancy Hundal’s lines and phrases to swoon over. Add to this the glorious artwork by Angela Pan. She captures light and sets it to illuminating the pages.

Put it all together and this picture book welcomes us into enchantment.

Review in BC Books for BC Schools 2020/21, p. 16.

This is a delightful story about the relationship between a young girl and her father.

This picture book supports the Curricular Competencies of the Career Education curriculum for primary grades as it explores a non-traditional occupation: automobile mechanic. Additionally, the story introduces readers to some of the skills needed to be a good worker, such as friendliness, kindness, patience, and politeness.
