Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
One of six titles launching the photograph-driven Say & Play series, this board book features crisp photos of 26 vehicles, each set against a white backdrop and labeled in a chunky font at the bottom of the page. From roller skates to a plane, a variety of methods of conveyance are covered, and the brightly colored objects (green scooter, blue cement mixer) allow for discussions of colors in addition to vehicle identifications. Also available: Baby Animals; Colors; Oink, Moo, Meow; First Words; and Numbers. Up to age 2. (Aug.)
Kirkus Reviews
With 26 photos of vehicles in all, this offering gives young transportation fans what they want. All the favorite machines are here, from an airplane to a fire truck to a school bus, but there are some surprising choices, too, like a blimp, a double-decker bus and a pair of roller skates. Many photo-illustrated board books on this theme are overwhelmingly busy, but here each image is given its own page and centered on a clean, white background. The clarity of the pictures makes the accompanying one- or two-word labels almost superfluous. While the images, on close inspection, look to be a potpourri of retouched stock photography, computer-generated images and photos of models, the intended audience won't care. With so many cars, trucks, buses and more to pore over, this is a good bang for the board-book buck. (Board book. 18 months-3 years)
