It is late at night in the city. From his father's shoulder, a sleepless baby watches the snow drift down from the sky onto the busy street below. What are all those noises? What are all those lights? His tired but patient father explains everything, from the bustle of taxis swishing through the slush to the grinding and slamming of the early-morning garbage trucks.
Teddy Jam’s lyrical prose and Eric Beddows’s detailed illustrations cast Night Cars in that magical light between sleep and waking. This classic baby book, now available in a board book format, is a perennial favorite.

Wonderful double page spread illustrations showing the baby in the foreground and the street in the background have a definite vintage feel. A minimal text with simple rhymes sweeps the reader from page to page with a soft rhythm which is soothing and which would be perfect for bedtime reading. - Through the Looking Glass Children's Book Review
