Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Sue Preissner
This picture book falls short in its attempt to show the differences between words, using automobiles as the constant. Funny can, odd car, limo and sports car make no sense. While the illustrations are colorful and well drawn, this book misses the mark. And why are the cars being driven by dogs?
School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Shades of Dr. Seuss's One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish (Random, 1960). Bright with primary colors and clean white pages, this similar title is a good choice for children who are just learning to sound out words. ``One car, two cars, old car, new car...His car, my car, say good-bye car.'' Simple but clever, it depicts a variety of dogs in different garb driving all the different autos. Kids will love it.-Jan Shepherd Ross, Dixie Elementary Magnet School, Lexington, KY
Hazel Rochman
A book about cars in all their varieties of shape, color, size, speed, etc., is a great way to introduce simple concepts to a young audience. Toddlers will see that books can tell them about the exciting vehicles they ride in and play with and love to identify. This title in the Story Corner series has straightforward, brightly colored pictures of zany dog characters driving all kinds of cars, with a pair of words for each picture: "Old car / New car / Yellow car / Blue car." Not all the concepts are as clear, and the rhyme is occasionally forced, but kids will enjoy talking about the vehicles and adding ideas of their own. The design is attractive, with lots of white space, thick card-stock pages, and enticing endpapers of all the cars driving along on lines of highway.
