Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K–In this fun and lively presentation, a youngster sets up his toy vehicles and action figures to show busy traffic patterns, a train crossing, tolls, a fire engine responding to a call, and road-condition reports from the helicopter overhead. The flowing text rhymes and has a good pace and rhythm, which makes it an ideal read-aloud for transportation fans. The illustrations are bright and full of detail. Children will have plenty to peruse and will go back again and again to catch everything they missed. The story will definitely spark their imaginations and can also be used to encourage creative play.–Lisa S. Schindler, Bethpage Public Library, NY

From Booklist

PreS. "Red light, stop. Green light, go. Cars and trucks drive to and fro." Once again, Suen offers a winning picture book that uses minimal, rhyming language to convey the rhythms of speed and motion. Wilson-Max adds a story in his bold, jellybean-colored acrylic paintings that show a boy playing with an elaborate model highway system, the tracks propped on books, the lanes demarcated with pencils, helicopters and vehicles moving through town. In a few scenes, shown right at street level, it's easy to forget that the lines of urban traffic are only make-believe. As in Peter Sis'Fire Truck (1998) and Dinosaur (2000), this bright, action-filled book beautifully captures the fluid borders between the real and imagined in children's play. Gillian Engberg

The little boy in this book is really into transportation. He sets up his on little traffic world with cars, trucks and planes. He makes the scenes from household objects such as books, shoe boxes and lots more. He uses his imagination to set up a busy town in his own home.

The little boy in the book was full of ideas. I liked seeing what he would come up with to play with next!

I would recommend this to kids ages 2-5. This age group seems love books about all things that GO!

My two year old son absolutely adores this book! We first checked it out at the library and knew that it was one we'd have to buy after he started quoting it ("Uptown, downtown people know...Red light stop, green light go!"). It is a very fun book for parents to read (I never get tired of it, thank goodness) and is one of my son's all time favorite books. The pictures are bright and clever and we have fun seeing how the little boy in the book sets up his play area. I honestly can't say enough about how much we love this book in our house.

I'll be honest: I'm not sure what it is about this book that he loves so much, but this book entertains my two year old SO much. Bright colors and shows Boy playing imaginatively with his vehicles (and other toys).

I didn't like the downloaded version because many pages were repeated and the storylines were added to the wrong pages. You don't need type added to the book it was fine and easy to read without the extra storylines.

For little boys, and girls of course, this well illustrated and versed story takes us on a journey through traffic and transport. The prose is simple and rhymes so the kids can relate to it and the parents are able to add their extra bit or allow the kids to be taken away by their imagination. A new favourite in our household!
