“Amazing Rubber Band Cars” is a really amazing book.  It tells all about how to make cars from rubber bands, cardboard and other simple supplies.  I am building one of these cars right now and the instructions are very easy-to-follow.  Each car in the book is a little harder than the one before it.  If you start with the first car, you can work your way through the book and learn more and more skills.

This book has easy directions and pictures to help. You can compare the picture in the book to your own progress to see if you are doing it right.  There are templates that you have to copy in order to make the cars. If you do not have a copier at home, make sure to stop by your library after buying this book to make copies, this way you can start building your car right away.

I really like this book. “Amazing Rubber Band Cars” gives me lots of ideas and is a fun activity to do with my dad on a weekend together.
