"Cars, they're just like us don't you think? They play games, they sing, dress up and even go to sleep; this is something I realized after reading Rick Walton's Cars at Play. In this colorful book of cars with faces we see cars doing all sorts of things that cars traditionally do like, drive and race but, this book takes a special spin on it that I found interesting. It compares the actions of these slightly anthropomorphic cars to those that people (namely children) do. For example, playing leapfrog, allegory for driving over cars on the freeway and playing dress up an allegory for the appearance of parade floats. I found it interesting that the way Rick used these cars could actually make me think, part of that goes to the very well made illustrations. The colors are bright and provide a happy tone throughout and the cars designs are simple (like something from bob the builder car town) but still look very nice. I highly recommend this book for young kids; if the cars won't get them hooked the rhyme scheme will! " said.

" Read for ideas in writing children's picture book. Is easy reader for child 3-7. Story about cars. " said.

" Was loving Rick Walton books, but this one wasn't near as good. The idioms go way over a 4 yr old's head and the illustrations are bright, but not very inviting. " said.

" Quite fun, great kid appeal, love the colors on the illustrations but wish some of the things were more traditional car things " said.

" My son liked this one one more than me, mostly just because it was about cars. My library copy was obviously a well-loved book as it was completely beat up. A cute rhyming text tells all the stuff that cars do on a daily basis, which sounds a lot like little boys. They ride piggy back, play jacks, go ice skating, eat snacks and a whole gambit of other things. Recommended for ages 2-6, 2 stars. " said.
