Stuart J. Murphy and his wife, Nancy, live in Evanston, Illinois.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1-This fine offering introduces the concept of patterns. Kevin has red, yellow, and blue cars that he always lines up in a special way on his shelf. His little sister Molly wants to play, but is told she is too young. Of course, she takes a turn the second Kevin leaves the room. Overhearing the "vrooming, crashing, and beeping," Dad and Mom remind her that she must put the cars back on the shelf exactly the way Kevin left them. This allows her several opportunities to arrange the vehicles in different ways. This clever book not only gives young readers the opportunity to identify color patterns, but also has the added bonus of a repetitive story, complete with sound effects. Whenever the children play with the cars, some variation of the refrain "VROOM VROOM zoomed the red cars. BEEP BEEP honked the yellow cars. CRASH CRASH banged the blue cars" ensues. Primary-color cartoon illustrations depict the family, a playful pooch, and plenty of toy-car action. Two concluding pages provide discussion questions and activities to reinforce the math as well as a few suggestions for further reading. However, many children will enjoy this book simply for the story and the colorful pictures.
