We loved this book because of the great variety. There isn't an ordinary vehicle in the bunch. Shiny black streets swoop and stretch across the pages, dotted with brightly colored cars, trucks and vans. We noted one large skyscraper car, a yellow finned car with a grinning crocodile behind the wheel, an electric car dragging along the plug, and a bed car with the driver snoozing away. The drivers (various animals and people of all shapes, sizes and temperaments), contents, and scenery are every bit as captivating as the cars.
Once we finished reading this through once, we had the best time flipping back through the pages and choosing our favorites. Clever, cute, and colorful .... this is the car book to have.
The pictures are amazing ...kudos to the illustrator!!
Book introduces the concept of opposites to young minds and proves that learning opposites does not have to be boring.
Every page is interesting to look at, all sorts of cars doing all sorts of things.
Peter Stein went a little overboard with the rhyming. Every page is overflowing with interesting,colorful cars going places, cars chasing and being chased etc, unfortunately, the author attempts to rhyme each and every vignette on the page. I would say that maybe 25% of the rhymes work, the rest are a clumsy jumble of words. When i am reading to my 2 year old, i have to do a bit a creative editing otherwise he loses interest.
I probably wouldn’t buy this again. I bought this directly from Amazon so hadn’t seen it first but if I had I don’t think I would have bought it. It is just ok for me. A bit too nonsensical.
