Blechman's graphic design background may account for his debut's disciplined focus and polished execution. It's a counting book about big vehicles-a winning combination right there-with an extra, innovative twist. He invites readers to identify the vehicles with a turn-the-page guessing game. First, spreads of pure black show only the vehicles' distinctive signature of lights. "1 light, shining bright?" reads the first black spread, a small, die-cut circle on the right side creating a single white dot. A page turn uncovers the answer: "train." The bold, crisp-edged, streamlined engine speeds toward viewers, its white headlamp front and center. "2 lights, hovering in flight?" the next jet-black spread asks, with two die-cut dots revealing tiny green and red lights. This time, it's a helicopter, piloted by a roundheaded man resembling a Lego or Playmobil figurine. The typeface contributes to the light theme, too-made up of dots, it mimics the blinking displays of highway warning signs. The lights on the vehicles go up to 10, but young vehicle fans will want to reread (and "replay") this book many more times than that. Ages 3-5. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

PreS-Gr 1-Count the lights-1, 2, 3.. Round and square openings on alternating black spreads highlight the numbers from 1 to 10 and back again. Brief text challenges readers to infer what lies on the following full-color spread, and a page turn will delight fans of motor vehicles and heavy equipment. A snowplow pushes through heavy snow as snowmen fish through holes in an icy pond and open chimneys smoke in the distance, a bright yellow school bus passes elephants in a zoo, and a vibrant red fire truck pours water on a chef's flaming skillet. Visual perspective emphasizes size and distance with a train moving along tracks from a distant tunnel or a helicopter flying amid birds above the city below. The vehicles roll past in uncluttered graphic designs and bold colors. Counting, shapes, and patterns end in a child's bedroom that holds toy images of all the vehicles and a very special single beacon for a small child. his night-light. An attractive, eye-catching find for all libraries.-Mary Elam, Learning Media Services, Plano ISD, TX (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
