Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
ea. vol: illus. by author. unpaged. CIP. Crowell. May 1986. PSm $3.50; PLB $7.89. PreS-Gr 1Simple books describing four distinct modes of transportation. In each volume, different types of each vehicle are presented (rowboats, tug boats, fireboats, etc.) as well as some of the usual scenes surrounding each (e.g., workers checking a passenger plane). Brightly colored illustrations outlined in heavy black convey a bold and simple first impression, yet they portray a good number of accurate de tails that preschoolers find so fascinat ing. The people shown are Barton's charming generic representations, dif ferentiated largely by clothing, skin and hair color. The repetitive nature of the minimal text (``here is the ship. . . ; here are the people. . . ; here comes a sailboat''), is choppy and results in some monotony, but such construc tions do make the series valuable for beginning readers. These books are vi sual stand-outs in any toddler, pre school or beginning reader collec tion.Linda Wicher, Lincolnwood Public Library, Ill.
