Sam and his acquaintances are unusual-looking, blocky figures, with big black blobs for eyes, and more blobs for nose and mouth. Characters and objects are reminiscent of the cars, signs, and figures in a child's play station. Small details are appealing: the mechanic is a woman, and the car's headlights bathe a portion of the text in yellow. This should be required reading for every driver's ed student; we can only hope that the repeated readings this book is bound to receive will sink in to preschoolers' minds for future recall: "I obey the laws. / I stop for pedestrians. / I read the signs." This is a lovely picture book. (Ages 2 to 5) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

While some parents may not enjoy the notion of a car being the subject of a picture book, the focus is clearly on the artwork. Bright and vivid tempura paints burst forth in a cavalcade of colors. All primary colors are present, and a particular focus is paid to yellow, green, blue and red. The only drawback is that there is no depth perception to the art; it is rendered in a flat style. This is a small complaint, however, as the colors, straight lines, and curves merge to create a truly unique book. A good introduction for toddlers into the world of color and shapes.
He loves this and all other similar books by Byron Barton (Trains Board Book,Airport,Machines at Work Board Book etc).
We've read this so many times that I know the story by heart - and he is still not tired of hearing this book. By far one of his favorites.
Both - the text and illustrations are simple for a young kid to grasp.
