“In Williams’ book, “We never Got out of the Car”, told from a child’s perspective, we are transported into a child’s mind experiencing with him his yearning to explore the excitement of life outside of the confines of his mother’s car. We are driven to the Pharmacy, taken to the Bank, the County Office and even the Library all of which we never experience because we never get out of the car. Instead, the reader is jammed within its confines which serves as a metaphor for Lloyd’s craving and inquisitive nature which finally crescendos into his wanting to read. Written in language appropriate for the age group to which it is targeted, ‘We Never Got Out of the Car”, makes a delightful read and ingeniously captures the interest of those readers who, like Lloyd, are ‘bored’ with reading stories that do not capture their experiences. This book surely does.”

“What a page turner! In reading “We Never Got Out of the Car” I, too, was anxiously wondering if the family would ever get out of the car. I won’t tell! The Author does a great job highlighting that most errands do not require us to get out of the car. It's so refreshing to see the point of view of the children as well. This is a great story, full of excitement to the very end!

“This book, “We Never Got Out of the Car”, sparks interest and provokes questions. The modern conveniences of Drive-In establishments can be good for adults but not very exciting for small children who has that natural desire to explore and seek out new adventures. This book is a good way to stir curiosity and to see the differences in our lives. “We Never Got Out of the Car” will be enjoyed by many - children and parents alike!”
