Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Vroom! Vroom! Whether on a cross-country road trip or a quick jaunt across town, there's no end to what a child can see from the backseat of a car. Using familiar road signs, this striking book introduces little ones to the alphabet as well as the world around them. Equally suited for transportationobsessed children and those just learning their ABCs—and newly republished on sturdy boards, perfect for little hands—this fresh and dynamic book will entertain and educate at home, in the classroom, and on the go.

Review:

"In a visual departure from van Lieshout's previous books, this alphabetical tribute to road signs rolls along glossy black pages designed to look like highway blacktop with a dotted white center line. Each letter of the alphabet is paired with a familiar road sign (No Entry, Stop, Yield, etc.). Van Lieshout keeps the formula simple, allowing readers to make their own connections between the white capital letters and the images (Q stands for 'Quack,' which appears on a yellow sign showing ducks crossing). Backseat drivers will enjoy learning the language of the road along with their ABCs. Ages 3 — 6. Agent: Steven Malk, Writers House." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
