A milestone just occurred in my life as a parent; my son bought his first car. He used his own hard-earned and saved money to buy a 1996 red Honda Civic. We registered it this morning and away he drove. Happy. He's only 16. I should have known this day would come sooner for him than for other kids when he had me read the P.D. Eastman classic, "Go, Dog, Go!" about a hundred times when he was a toddler. So, beware... if your child wants to hear "Go, Dog, Go!", or it's modern descendant, "Zoom City" by Thatcher Hurd, or "In the Driver's Seat" by Max Haynes over and over again then you may be in my position sooner than you think! (BTW, all three of these books are lively, zoom-y, a bit wild, and fun!)
