Young children will relish matching each vehicle with the appropriately costumed driver in this latest from Timmers. Keys in hand, four animals line up to get in each vehicle, but which one belongs? A turn of the page reveals the answer, along with the driver’s destination. Toddler favorites abound—fire truck, race car, tractor and airplane. But a few curve balls in the forms of a fancy car, convertible and a jeep, are thrown in to stretch thinking skills. Timmers’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. (Picture book. 3-6)
