Dan and his friendly dog travel through the city streets picking up members of a band that will be performing at a club later that night. As he picks them up, each member has certain sounds associated with the instrument he/she plays. Young readers will enjoy saying those sounds such as "Squeeba-dee-dee, squeeba-dee doo!"

It's Dan

This book reads like a song; no surprise because Eric Ode is a great songwriter and singer too!
The illustrations are adorable, whimsical, and so lively.
You feel like you are really rolling along in this taxi!

This is fun to read aloud with enthusiastic rhythm. I imagine that if you don't employ enough energy, it would be annoying to read. I suspect if we had it for months rather than the weeks of a library loan, we might get sick of it, but we might not. Definitely for readers and listeners who enjoy repetitive, rhythmic books.
Dan, the taxi man, drives around town picking up members of the band. Interaction with the story by the readers since the story repeats the members who have already been picked up and we can say the sounds the instruments make like the sax: boom, boomba, boom!
A fun book about Dan, the taxi man, who drives all over town picking up members of a band for their performance that evening. Playful opportunities for children to read along...
