With energy and exuberance, the author of Pick a Pine Tree and the illustrator of Angry Cookie pair up for a bustling day in the life of a big-city taxicab.

Today will be a busy day for Taxi! There are plenty of passengers to pick up, and they all need a ride—to a football game, a play, a business meeting, the airport, and more. Whizzing left, right, and through traffic, Taxi has to STOP for red lights and emergency vehicles. But after every stop, stop, stop, it’s Taxi . . . go, go, GO! Humming with musical rhyme and clever sound play, this vibrant take on a classic read-aloud theme radiates adventure and good fun. Brightly illustrated spreads of a happy urban world teem with details that vehicle-loving tots will pore over as they follow winsome Taxi through the work day and throughout the town until it’s time for bed.

Taxi, Go! Is a great read for the Toddler/Preschool vehicle enthusiast in your life. It highlights the ways the taxi helps get people from door to store and home again. The vibrantly detailed pictures give a young reader much to look at and the rhyming text makes the book flow nicely from page to page. Overall, this would be a fun addition to learning about community helpers and the functions of a specific type of transportation, the taxi.

TAXI, GO! is an exuberant, rhyming picture book that follows a taxi around town. The taxi is traveling through town with key moments of stop and go, picking up passengers, at red/green lights, and all over town. The little taxi has a busy day!

What I loved: This is a cute and delightful picture book. The adorable, anthropomorphized taxi car has lot to do, and it is excited to do them. The story takes the reader around town as the taxi picks up passengers and takes them to their locations, including visits to the airport, a children's soccer game, and more. With emphasis on the words "stop" and "go," young readers can begin to identify these key terms. Rhyming text adds to the charm of the story.

The illustrations are fantastically detailed and full of color. A diverse cast of people throughout adds to the charm of the story. With the rhyming text and quickly turning pages, this is a story that will work well for older toddlers and preschoolers, who can begin to chime in with saying "stop" and "go" along the way.

Final verdict: An exuberant and joyful story, TAXI, GO! is a rhyming picture book that is sure to charm toddlers and preschoolers.
