reviews

An energetic good-morning book filled with short, rhyming text that fairly bounces off the page, lots of onomatopoeia, and bright, vibrant close-ups of all kinds of vehicles and aircraft. School buses, garbage trucks, street sweepers, helicopters, and more crank up their noisy motors as a little boy climbs out of bed and starts his day. No little engine lover should be without a copy of this winsome book, as dynamic and peppy as its companion was soothing and sleepy.

"RUMBLE! ROOOAR!"
"BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!"
