Editorial Reviews

Review

“More than just a good read, this board book is the ideal traveling companion for what to expect when heading out the door with little ones.”—Pamela Brill, TalkingWalnut.com



This colorful board book takes youngsters through the steps of going on errands. Busy fabric collage and strong black lines make vivid images of a mother and two small children. On the first page Mom asks: “What comes before GO?” The children answer: “We know…Get ready! Get set!” They then “Get ready, get set…Go potty first.” They get their coats and a snack, and buckle car seats. Their first stop is a grocery store. From the cart the little boy reaches for “sugar snacks” and “cookie wookies.” Uh-oh, the answer is no.” His older sister calms him with deep breaths. “If you’re sad or mad, take deep breaths. Ready, set? B-r-e-a-t-h-e in and out and in again. That’s how you calm down.” She helpfully hands Mom a bag of oranges. The siblings walk to a library and then go home to play. The final spread provides “‘On-the-Go’ Tips for Parents & Caregivers” such as “keep to a schedule” and “plan for some fun.” This book would be a useful conversation starter for young families needing to help their children with similar tasks.—School Library Journal

Format: Board book
My Review: On-the-Go Time is a board book for toddlers about good behavior. Toddlers are always on the go so this book teaches about Get ready, get set and Go. According to the author, "Get ready, get set, go get into coats...out the door ...into the car. With On-the-Go Time, shopping and running errands with children really can mean fewer hassles and more fun for everyone!"
This book contains help tips for parents and caregivers to help keep toddlers moving like scheduling appointments in between children's meals and naps to ensure they are rested and ready to go, making a go-time list that would help the child to look forward to. And before you leave home, give your child a chance to use the bathroom or drink a cup of water and snack to take along and many more.

This is an easy to read book with great illustrations. If you're searching for a book to teach your toddler about good behavior this is it.

I really like this series of books and get a new one every time we enter a problem zone with the kiddo (biting, hitting, etc.). Recently, he started hating getting ready to go out (such as putting his shoes on, getting in the car seat, etc.). This book didn't help with that stuff. It's basically about being in a good mood and acting politely when you are out, which is great. However, I was hoping it would be in line with the other books -- there's a problem, here's a way of dealing with it (deep breathing, etc.). The kids are too good of a mood in this book!

Love this book. My 20 month old copies some of the things in it and asks to read it all the time. It has short phrases/sentences on each page and wonderful illustrations which keeps her short attention span. The general ideas are fabulous and I know this will be a great book/reminder for my daughter for years to come. Highly recommended.

I LOVE this book series. My granddaughter loves books and these are always her first 'go to' when she wants to read. Thanks to the author for a very well written series that actually teaches toddlers!

I love this whole series of books, my toddler really seems to learn from books. He looks at the drawings of children in these books and they become role models. It is easier for me to guide his behavior if I have a clear example of other children behaving in that certain way. This particular book has helped us get out the door a little faster-- and it gives me language to use to encourage him-- like can you be a "super helper" and get your shoes on!
