School Library Journal - 02/01/2017 K-Gr 2—Gibbons presents the topic of transportation to young readers in her easy, identifiable style. Employing large, bright watercolor illustrations to complement brief but descriptive text, the book sheds light on the ways people around the world have developed diverse modes of travel. Gibbons explains the variety of options for those on the go, from public transportation to aircraft, big and small. She discusses what it means to commute and how travel is used for work and pleasure. Labels on each page enhance understanding. A scene of children preparing to board a school bus engages the audience as users of transportation. Back matter depicts a number of important signs, signals, and navigational aids. VERDICT A solid, accessible introduction to the subject for little ones.—Annette Herbert, F. E.
