Brimming with bright colors, sounds, and city energy, this adventure makes working together and taking turns more fun than ever. Now with a free downloadable party kit!
". . . big, swooshing street sweeper; the taxi with screeching brakes; the busy police car; the frowning bus. The angry traffic standoffs and the small truck’s triumph will be welcome fuel for many preschoolers’ imaginative play."--Booklist
"It's in the fusion of the old-fashioned with the modern-eclectic--one man in the crowd listens to an iPod--that the book's artistry shines."--Publisher's Weekly
