Author Kim Rogers (Wichita) and illustrator Jonathan Nelson (Diné) bring to life a letter written by a Wichita girl who says goodbye to her beloved family car named Bob, thanking him for all the memories of powwows, vacations, and time spent with family.

With humor and heart, and brought to life by Jonathan Nelson’s warm, distinctive artwork, Kim Rogers’s A Letter for Bob celebrates the treasured cars that carry us through our most meaningful childhood moments.

Ever since the day Mom and Dad brought Bob home from the car dealership, Bob has been a part of Katie’s family.

Bob has taken them all over, from powwows to vacations to time spent with faraway family. Bob has been there in sad and scary times and for some of the family’s most treasured memories.

But after many miles, it’s time for the family to say goodbye to Bob…

This humorous and tender story about a family car will appeal to every kid whose family has owned a special car.
