Read full description of the books:
Although this onomatopoeic read-aloud book has several positive elements, the lack of a narrative would have it better suited to a board book for 0-3 year olds.
‘Toot Toot Beep Beep’ begins with ‘Look at all this traffic!’ and proceeds to use interesting language to describe what various vehicles are doing throughout the day.
The book supports learning through use of prepositions (up, down, around, in, out); onomatopoeia (beep, vroom, honk, toot); and colours, vehicles and adjectives (‘big blue van’, ‘sleek black sports car’). New and challenging verbs provoke questions from listeners and therefore promote engagement: trundles, glides, hurtles. This interactive element allows the reader to explain what the verbs mean therefore adding new vocabulary words. Each vehicle’s actions and sounds follow a similar pattern, for example: (‘Vroom vroom’) goes the (sleek black sports car) and off he/she (speeds).
Emma Garcia’s illustrations have an Eric Carle (‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’) quality. I wonder if she too uses collage as a medium to create her images. The colours are bright and the simple images have a graphic quality, but leave me with little enthusiasm.
I enjoyed the last two double pages – a moment of silence as night falls, drawing a halt to the busy noise of preceding pages, followed by an explanation of where the vehicles go at night. This is the first sign of any real narrative in the book, which is my main gripe. I believe two to six year olds are more sophisticated than this type of ‘what noise does an x make’ book, and that ‘Toot Toot Beep Beep’ would be more suited to a board book for one to two year olds.
