Hamsters have many places to go and lots of ways to get there! Following the success of her previous board books on numbers, colors and opposites, Kass Reich once again presents her beloved, splayed-toed hamsters. This time, the adorable critters are on the move, demonstrating all the different ways they get from here to there. A lively and humorous introduction to modes of transportation for little ones.
Reich's hamsters are back in a fourth board book, and this time they are showing off different forms of transport. The straightforward rhymes ("Hamsters in a car/ Hamsters on a boat") belie the playful details in Reich's images (the car is a clown car, stuffed with seven hamsters and their accouterments). The final page shows the hamsters playing with toy trucks and submarines and drawing unicycles and hot-air balloons, suggesting all of the miles covered were of an imaginary variety. Once again, these hamsters prove to be a bunch of charmers, whether on land, sea, or sky. Up to age 3.
