"Creative and appealing . . . Each page consists of a singsonglike rhyme that makes for a jovial readaloud." - School Library Journal"Vrooming vehicles of all kinds, carrying a distinctive cast of anthropomorphic animals . . . A playful twist for automobile-loving readers." - Publishers Weekly"It's the interactions among the cast of animals that generate the fun in the full-spread illustrations. There are lots of vehicle-themed alphabet books, but very few are as all-inclusive as this one is." - Kirkus Reviews"The featured letters are often incorporated into the vehicles or other parts of Kirk's appealing digital illustrations, but when kids realize that the amiable, dressed-animal characters also represent those letters, naming them adds to the fun. . . . A versatile, enjoyable picture book for kids enthralled by vehicles." - Booklist"This appealing picture book will work well in classrooms and storytimes and as a bedtime read. A must-have for most collections." - School Library Journal on PUSH! DIG! SCOOP!"In this well-conceived, bouncy and colorful primer, Greene builds up various geometric shapes from a line. . . . A clever and fun introduction to the assorted shapes." - starred review, Publishers Weekly on WHEN A LINE BENDS . . . A SHAPE BEGINS"In prose reminiscent of the 'Old MacDonald' song, Greene develops an amusing story. . . . A storytime winner." - starred review, School Library Journal on BARNYARD SONG"A sure-fire hit. . . . Fun, fun, fun." - starred review, Booklist on LIBRARY MOUSE"Kirk soups up his streamlined oil paintings with comic nuance. The dog characterizations are a stitch, and youngsters will enjoy the subtle jokes. A load of fun." - Publishers Weekly on MY TRUCK IS STUCK
