A fun book about all the different vehicles girls can helm - fire trucks, ambulances, motorcycles, tugboats, and more! So nice to have a female-centric book about driving - complete with a diverse gang of feisty ladies taking charge with gusto - beep beep!

Praise For…


Girl power meets things that go in this colorful early picture book. Girls with diverse skin colors, hair colors, and hair textures drive, conduct, steer, speed, rev, fly, build, load, dump, and rocket in vehicles of many different types....A hit for girls who identify strongly with girlhood and love things that go. 
 
— Kirkus Reviews

This rousing call to girl power....puts girls in the driver’s seat of all kinds of vehicles, in which they haul things around, steer into port, fly through the air, and save people—making a lot of noise as they work....Active verbs abound, the rhyming text is propulsive, and Black’s illustrations are blasting with color and movement. A satisfying ending moves the text from what girls can do to “What about you? Give it a try! Go, girl, go!”
