Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Wheels are the exciting action in this alphabet book. A boy on a car trip with his mother and his dog discovers a whole world of vehicles and driving, from Ambulance and Bus to Headlights and Keys, until they reach the Yield sign and Zoom home. . . . The detailed, lively scenes in acrylics and colored pencil are set in the San Francisco area and show a rich diversity of people, objects, vehicles, and actions that kids can identify. . . . The busy streets are full of stories." Booklist, ALA

"Softly rumpled colored-pencil and acrylic pictures cruise through the alphabet from ambulance to zoom as a young mother, child, and dog take a leisurely recreational drive through San Francisco and the Bay area." The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"From A to Z, there are 11 types of vehicles identified, 5 traffic signs featured, and 10 related items named to suit the remaining letters. The full-color illustrations show the ethnic diversity of the San Francisco setting and a rich array of locales as a little boy and his mother drive from the center of the city to their home in the woods. A handy addition." School Library Journal
