“On the cover and throughout the book, the car’s body is made of shiny orange crinkle material that sparkles like the star that is the central image of the original lullaby. This tactile element . . . provides an opportunity for tots to expand their senses. . . . The book has an invitingly small trim size-smaller than most board books-which suits its little protagonist. Readers can expect the sturdy pages to stand up to wear and tear.”-Kirkus Reviews
