Stump the BooksellerC330: Car changes color
When I was in kindergarten in 1975 my teacher would red us this book before nap time.  It was about a little car that liked to go fast and run red lights and always got in trouble.  The car tried changing colors but nothing seemed to go right until he became red.  Once he was red he got to drive the fire chief to fires so he did not get in trouble for running red lights and going fast.
