Review by Booklist Reviews

This rousing call to girl power breaks the chain of titles like Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site (2011) that feature anthropomorphized diggers, dozers, and cranes with no one at the controls. It 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. Girls drive, push, and propel through the book, with a dynamic layout dividing the pages into horizontal streaks of movement, followed by pages giving shout-outs in huge, bright letters to the noise each girl makes ("VROOM! goes Emma," "HOOT! goes Meg," "CLANK! goes Jayla") and culminating with a chorus of "GO, GIRLS, GO!" 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!" Preschool-Grade 1. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
