Michael J. Rosen’s bio

A Drive in the Country

author: Michael J. Rosen
illustrator: Marc Burckhardt

The car has been stocked with drinks and snacks, maps and joke books, treats for horses and ducks — and now it’s time for three kids, two parents, and one excited dog to set off on that most favorite day trip, a drive in the country. The destination? Oh, here, there, and home again, with a fresh appreciation of family togetherness. Michael J. Rosen’s lyrical, nostalgic text and Marc Burckhardt’s whimsical illustrations are sure to encourage armchair travelers to come along for the ride.

Climb in for the perfect road trip! Farm visits and foraging in the fields, car games and silly songs — what better way for a family to spend the day?
