Dogs race through the streets in snazzy automobiles! But look closely for some interesting features in this entertaining board book for children. Short and repetitive text, bright colors, and lots of action words make this board book a fun one to share or read alone!
Picked this up at a grab bag library sale. Expected it to be the least used book in our 1 baby (currently 8 months old) family. But it's far ahead the favorite so far! Almost all of the words are onomatopoeiatic; I think that's why it's such a winner.

My two-year-old son loves this book. It's very simply, but he'll repeat every word after I read it, and he'll sit paging through it for long periods of time. I'm not sure what the appeal is--but it works!
I love this board book! The rhymes are fun to read aloud, and the drawings--saturated in color--were dynamic and exciting. I had to buy a second copy because the first got worn out.
This book was a favorite of all four of my boys who would ask for multiple readings in one sitting. Great book.
