Fasten your seatbelts! This simple book is a great way to rev up a baby or toddler storytime.
There’s not really a plot here, but a different kind of vehicle rumbles across each double-page spread. Each is a bright color and—best of all—each makes its own sound. It’s lots of fun to hear a group beeping, vrooming and chugging from page to page.
Although it’s not classified as a concept book, this book would work wonderfully in a storytime about colors or “things that go.” Each car, van or jeep (there’s also a pink limousine) has a friendly set of eyes in front, instead of headlights. And at the end of the book they all go to bed in a parking garage.
Garcia has written several other, similarly noisy titles, including Tip Tip Dig Dig and Tap Tap Bang Bang.
