Review: This transportation ABC book has colorful illustrations with a retro feel which, fittingly for the topic, show much movement. Olivera selects vocabulary from all phases of a vehicle's life, such as "J is for Junkyard, K is for Kaput!" The two page spread of "N is for New car, O is for Old car" shows a young man getting a new car, then the same man selling the car when he and the car are old. An electric car is shown on the "P is for Plugged in, Q is for Quiet" spread. People with diverse skin tones are shown, as well as a female race car driver on the "W is for Winner" page.
