A book-and-sound module follows a car drive to Grandpa's house in which the young passengers enjoy honking the horn, turning on the signal blinkers, switching on the radio and windshield wipers, and fastening seat belts.

Reading is anything but a quiet activity with a volume from the My Little Driver series in hand. Tiny batteries hidden in each book's plastic frame power a pantheon of loud, digitally recorded sounds relating to the story line. The reader's job is to press the picture-coded sound button?located in a dashboard of sorts, at the bottom of the plastic frame?when the matching picture shows up in the text. In Little Sailor, a submarine voyage is a leisurely lesson in underwater life, with each realistically painted sea creature clearly labeled. Nine buttons activate the sound effects, among them a propeller "pouring on power"; an exterior microphone ("Let's go find the whale!"); the drone of a foghorn. In Little Pilot, a trip over the Grand Canyon and sky-jumping are enhanced with such sounds as radio contact with the tower and the vroom of takeoff and landing. It's a whistle-stop train ride in Little Engineer: bells clang, brakes slam and engines roar. In Little Driver, the reader steers a car out of town for a picnic, on the way listening to the radio, honking the horn, hearing the swoosh of the windshield wipers and the click of turn signals, etc. High-tech gimmick, or verisimilitude? Maybe both, but who cares??it's fun. Ages 3-6.
