'Shake up, City.
Let's get moving.
Hey, everyone.
Let's get grooving.

Night is over.
Sun's aglow.
Garbage trucks. Joggers.
Time to go.

Good morning, City!

The rhymed text of this picture book captures the sights and sounds of a big city. You'll discover that cars, taxi cabs, buses, cement mixers, elevated trains, emergency vehicles, and motorcycles all contribute to the symphony that plays throughout the day.

Tad Carpenter's illustrations capture the action as all types of transportation create the din that is so familiar a feature of life in metropolitan centers. 'Spin! Spin! Whoosh!' Here comes the subway into the station. 'Zoom! Zoom! Vroom-Varoom!' There goes an ambulance down the street.

Since this book features very busy pages with plenty of things happening, you and your three year old will discover new things every time you both page through Zoom! Zoom! This will also be an instant hit with any child who loves cars, trucks and other vehicles.
