PreS–Mom, Dad, and other caregivers tackle the universal problem of creatively manipulating their toddlers back into their strollers by using a bit of imagination. Each spread shows a realistic location–the library, the toy store, the grocery store, the pet shop, the post office–while vibrantly colored foldout pages magically transform each child's stroller into something more exciting and appealing than the place he or she is about to leave. Derek's dad informs his son, "It's not a stroller.... It's... A Fire Truck," while Emmy's mom promises, "It's... A Racing Car." The adults' pained expressions prior to their brainstorm range from nonchalance to exasperation, while each child's expression is pricelessly realistic. The foldout illustrations show each youngster in a large-as-life vehicle–a fighter jet, a submarine, even a rocket ship–wearing a huge smile. The simple, rhyming text and eye-catching pictures make this book a good choice for sharing aloud.–Wanda Meyers-Hines, Ridgecrest Elementary School, Huntsville, AL
