Allmänna fakta



Illustrations are what we expect from Floca, beautiful & detailed. The pictures are more interesting then the text, which is boring and a bit redundant. Great pictures of trucks would interest the small truck loving kids, but the text would probably not be something to read over ad over to those little buddies.

This book is stunning, both in its illustrations and the writing. It simultaneously tells how steam engines work while the pictures tell the story of a family traveling across the USA. It is a great book to look through and read again and again.

I like the vivid language of this picture book, and the way it celebrates the technical accomplishment the Apollo 11 mission was.

Will Caldecott judges consider a Covid19 themed book? In my opinion they should because this book is absolutely beautiful. This is a well done representation of the pandemic and pays homage to those who could not stay inside those beginning days.

It's text heavy. It's a lap read and not a storytime read (which, sidebar, I loved that there was a mention of virtual storytimes....I did those!!) But Caldecott criteria is not on the words; it is on the pictures. In typical Brian Floca fashion, the artwork is the dominant driving force. There is diversity in the healthcare and delivery workers. The homages to the toilet paper and obscene about of packages people bought.....I loved those because the relevancy is spot on.… (mer)
