Young children will love travelling on an action packed journey through this book of vehicles, jam-packed with trains, planes, racing cars, sailing boats and more!
Margaret Mayo is an acclaimed storyteller and author of several bestselling children's titles. A former teacher, she uses her wide-ranging experience with children in her writing. She lives in Brighton.
PreS-K-A book about all the ways for people on the go to get where they're going. Mayo includes race cars, trains, buses, planes, and even hot-air balloons. Each bright spread features a new vehicle and four lines about the sounds it makes and the way it moves. Flat illustrations loaded with primary colors and geometric shapes combined with a text full of "zooms" and "vrooms" beg for sharing aloud. Each verse concludes with a large "Off they go!" leading readers to turn the page and discover a new way to travel. On the last page, darkness falls and many of the vehicles are "resting" but a few will keep traveling until they are "home at last!" A surefire selection in any library where toddlers and preschoolers go "Zippity-zip" or "RoarrrRR!"-Julie Roach, Watertown Free Public Library, MA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
The illustrations have a modern feel and the whole effect is very appealing. -- Angels and Urchins 20040401
After interactively exploring ambulances, police cars and more in Emergency!, Margaret Mayo and artist Alex Ayliffe take on trains, planes, boats and other modes of transport for the paper-over-board Choo Choo Clickety-Clack! Sound effects galore will have youngsters chiming in (bikes go "Zippety-Zip!"; cable cars go "Shlummp! Whurrrr!"). Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
