Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Through out the calendar year, six young neighborhood children and their two dogs transform one little red wagon into all sorts of different modes of transportation. As the seasons change, the months are highlighted in the decorative boarder. Appelt's simple, poetic text flows over the brightly colored illustrations. Kvasnosky's illustrations have strong ink lines with bold guache paint.

PreS-K-A look at the creative ways a traditional red wagon is used by a group of children throughout the year. Its functions are varied, as it serves as a prairie schooner in March, a tractor in November, and a "fancy float with bows and stars" for the Fourth of July. An uncomplicated, rhyming text with clear, bold illustrations brings the little red wagon and its owners to life. Simple but attractive, this is a good choice for lap sharing.-Kathy Mitchell, Gadsden Co. Public Library, Quincy, FL
