PreS-Gr. 2. This brightly illustrated guide offers a little information along with plenty of color photos of signs. Each double-page spread introduces a new topic or locale with a few short sentences, a photo of a sign in place, and pictures of several related ones. The spread "Make way for . . . " shows signs warning drivers about people or animals crossing the road. The labeled examples are wordless signs indicating buffalo, elk, burro, horseback riders, deer, ducks, tractors, and cows. A larger photo of a rural scene features a sign with a kangaroo, accompanied by a caption noting that Australian drivers must watch out for hopping kangaroos. Most of the signs in the book are those that American children will see along the highway or in their towns and cities, though there are a few, such as the one warning of "stinging jellyfish in the water," that will be hard to find. The last page challenges children to match wordless signs with their meanings. ((Reviewed April 15, 2006)) Copyright 2006 Booklist Reviews.
