The alphabet hits the road in this vividly illustrated picture book featuring all things that go!
Buckle up for an alphabetical road trip in Ramon Olivera’s ABCs of Wheels! In this book, kids will learn their ABCs in the fast lane. From A is for axl to Z is for zoom, young children will be introduced to taxis, hot rods, moon rovers, stagecoaches, racecars, ice cream trucks, and more in a celebration of where the wheels meet the road.
Refreshing and unique, this concept book is filled with bold, graphic illustrations that race off the page!
In an excellent companion to 2015's ABCs on Wings, Olivera introduces land-based vehicles large and small, old and new. Like its predecessor, the book is distinguished by smart word pairings and clean, crisp digital graphics, with details that amplify the ideas being introduced. A scene set in foggy London pairs a tiny Mini Cooper ("Cc is for compact") and a large bus ("Dd is for double-decker"), the latter occupied by the queen, a punk rocker, and a bulldog with a monocle. Later on, a tow truck hauls a busted-up station wagon to the dump as Oliver cites "junkyard" and "kaput," and a presidential "limousine" is surrounded, naturally, by a police "motorcade." Like the "underdog" who wins a stock car race late in the book, this one deserves a victory lap. Ages 3 7.
