School Library Journal - 04/01/2014 K-Gr 2—This counting book captures the go, go, go atmosphere of the Big Apple subway system. The text drives the story forward, echoing the way the subway moves a whole city, while a mother and her daughter observe their surroundings as they ride the train. Yaccarino's vibrant brush, ink, and Photoshop illustrations create a playful visual experience and show the diversity of the people who ride the subway every day. The story begins with "1 metro card," continues up to "10 friends," and counts back down again to "1 station, central and grand." The numbers are in different colors, and they often correspond with a color in the picture. As "3 drums thumpin' a rush-hour groove," the numeral three and an image of the drums are shown in yellow, making it easy for children to recognize the items to be counted. An amusing and fun story that will delight those who love things that go.—Christopher Lassen, Brooklyn Public Library - Copyright 2014 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
