The text zips along with rhythmic gusto...This successful collaboration combines brisk and spirited writing with bold, effervescent pictures and will have wide appeal to young readers. Fliess’s punchy rhymes mimic the speed and energy of the cars being described, making for a lively read-aloud...Young car enthusiasts will enjoy the ride through this zippy, robust picture book.” —School Library Journal

Automobiles galore in this ode to the particular set of pleasures and miseries that occur in a world full of cars. All in all, it’s an infinite loop of automotive joys interwoven with a rather charming narrative.
Kirkus Reviews


"This was one of the first books I checked out for Poppy, and we keep on checking it out again and again. For babies, the repetition teaches the concept of “car,” one of the most common first words. For toddlers, I like the rhyming and descriptive words. I also use in speech to teach the /k/ sound. Kids love this book! See the other activities we did for transportation week in my Stories." @bilingualbookshelf
