About the Book









“This laugh-and-a-half book gets its kick from well-structured rhyming text and fruit-colored, in-your-face pictures. Fun for children and teachers alike.” – Booklist

“This book will teach your child about different vehicles used for transportation; you’ll have fun helping your child spotting the clock in each illustration so they can see what time it is, and the cleverly written rhyming text will help your child guess the rhyming word before turning to the next page. This book gets a high five from me for fun, for learning, and for having the tables turned on a teacher for a change – every kids’ dream!” – Stories for Children Magazine

“…this fast-paced pleaser… shows that even teachers can learn a new lesson.” – Kirkus


“…this book shouts MOTION and encourages listeners to fill in the rhyme with each turn of the page… A colorful selection for all libraries….stimulating choice for teachers presenting time and transportation or inspiration for young students as the school year resumes.” – School Library Journal
