Miles to Go - Jamie Harper (Picture Book)




Released October 2010

Reviewed By Bob Walch


Miles loves to take his little yellow car to school each day. He jumps in and lets his feet provide the power as his mother walks behind him. Along the way the preschooler greets the neighbor’s dog, mails some letters and is careful to avoid a collision with other people on the sidewalk.

Once at school, Miles parks his little car next to the other children's bikes and vehicles. When school is out, Miles and his good friend Otto work on the car because it has a broken horn. Once the horn is fixed, Beep! Beep!, the child is ready to roll again.

The bright illustrations and simple storyline of this picture book will capture the attention of any young car enthusiast who loves to zoom around in his toy auto. Of course, Miles is a careful driver and he’s a good example of how to follow road safety rules or, in this case, sidewalk courtesy.
