Who is driving . . . the fire engine?
He is driving to the fire station.
From fire trucks to convertibles and snails to elephants, here's a book that's full of toddler favorites! Kids must solve the puzzle: which animal is driving which vehicle? With bold illustrations full of funny details, kids will love reading--and playing--this simple guessing game again and again.
Leo Timmers has written and illustrated several books for children, including Happy with Me, which was awarded the Bookfeather Prize for Best Upcoming Talent. His books have been published in Korea, Brazil, Spain, Denmark, France, the United States and Sweden. Leo lives in Brussels, Belgium with his wife Gina and their daughter Luna.
From Kirkus ReviewsTimmers's acrylic illustrations are delightfully three-dimensional, appearing as if they might pop off the page at any moment and zoom right into the living room. Unlikely drivers and outfits will keep youngsters engaged in looking for more funny details. A must for any preschool group studying community helpers and careers. --Kirkus Reviews
From Publisher's Weekly
Kids take the wheel in this paper-over-board title that invites them to love learning by making it fun. …Youngsters will enjoy sounding out the noise each vehicle makes as their engines "start" and practically bound right out of the book. --Publishers Weekly From TheDailyStroll.comAfter a few times of reading through with Ruby [my daughter] she was hooked and now insists on reading it to herself and also quizzing us on "Who Is Driving?". It is amazing to me how she picked up on the little differences between the illustrated characters and was able to define the appropriate match. Maybe I underestimated her but it's very rewarding as a mom to watch your child embrace a wonderful book and also learn something from it. --TheDailyStroll.com
