Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A number of families set off on journeys one morning, each via a different mode of transportation. ``Zip, whiz, zoom! / We're on our way! / We're going somewhere / special today.'' One family rides a bus, another scampers aboard an airplane, still another struggles up and down hill on bicycles. But whether they are traveling by truck, train, ferry or helicopter--or by any of the other means of locomotion pictured here--all are carrying gifts. Readers will relish tracking these pilgrims as they journey across the pages of the book to converge at a surprise destination. Young transportation buffs can revel in the cheerful, action-filled illustrations, which often playfully extend beyond their borders. Calmenson's simple, breezy verse invites her audience's participation; each stanza begins with the sound effects of a different vehicle, with the various vrooms, whirrs, toots and beeps joining at the end in a robust crescendo. Ages 2-6. Sept.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-- This energetic story in rhyme features different family members as they all make their way to a common destination--Grandma's house, where her birthday celebration is about to begin. Each double-page spread features a different form of transportation and a suitable onomatopoeic term in its quatrain text. Readers may be confused by the fact that the people look very similar, and the busy layout makes identification even more difficult. Nevertheless, once they learn to look for the birthday package in tow, they'll enjoy searching the pages. The final gathering is a jubilant affair with bands, balloons, and a purple helicopter all arriving simultaneously. Stott's cartoon illustrations are colorful, humorous, and sure to please. While there's no information here, the book will provide a lively introduction to transportation for an age group already fascinated with things that zip, whiz, and zoom. --Lori A.
