THE OIL CHANGE: Grandpa’s Garage

Book Review by David Korson for Readers’ Favorite

D.A. Northup shares the mechanics of an oil change thoroughly yet uncomplicatedly, always keeping safety at the forefront. Even though the characters’ descriptions are minimal, it is easy to picture them through the child’s curiosity and comprehension and through Grandpa’s wisdom and gentleness. Frequent images punctuate the narrative, offering glimpses of the tools and equipment used. I love how the simple pictures add consistency to the book through tire-tread framing and oil-splash backgrounds. However, my favorite aspect is the nostalgia for spending time with my grandparents and learning from their life experiences.
