Big cars, small cars, let's call ALL cars! This bouncy text explores the wonderful world of cars zipping up, down, fast, and slow. A perfect basic concept books for eager young learners from the author of Tons of Trucks. Then cruise into bedtime!
Rest cars, Hush cars
No more rush, cars.
Cars pull in, turn off the light.
Sweet dreams, sleepy cars...goodnight!
Filled with vibrant art, adorable animal characters, and cars of all kinds from love bugs to the demolition derby, Calling All Cars is for every child who loves to read about things that go! Surprise bonus -- follow one long road throughout this vividly imagined world and don't miss the hidden clues in the artwork!

We received this book via NetGalley and publisher to give an honest review.

This was a really cute and very colorful book about cars. Cars of all kinds not just regular cars you have cars that are breaking down, beach cars, circus clown cars and so much more.
Where are all the cars going though at the end? You just have to read that to find out. 
This is really good for those that are learning to read as the words are really easy and it is describing the different cars. A really enjoyed the pictures and saying 'honk and beep' when the words would appear and seeing animals drive them.
