Reviews

"The illustrations are full of fun details and have a cartoonish style that works well for this story. The story's strength lies in its portrayal of a positive attitude in the face of adversity, and in the resourcefulness exhibited by the main characters. An appealing and interactive read-aloud with a good message that is a solid choice for most picture book collections." -School Library Journal

"Dog lovers and vehicle-obsessed readers will all get a kick out of this counting book, . . . Through playful repetition and some very expressive vocabulary, Brendler turns traffic-clogged roads and construction delays into an adventure, and Kurilla's airy cartoons magnify the sense of fun." --Publishers Weekly

". . . darling cartoon illustrations, counting concepts, and all kinds of things that go, this book is sure to have broad appeal for read-alouds. A family romp that demonstrates what a positive attitude and a bit of resourcefulness can accomplish in less-than-ideal circumstances" --Kirkus
