Donald Crews (born August 30, 1938) is an American illustrator and writer of children's picture books. In 2015, the American Library Association (ALA) honored him with the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal, recognizing his lasting contribution to children's literature. Common subjects of his include modern technology (especially travel vehicles), and childhood memories. His stories often include few humans.

The book begins in the gray dawn with a sanitation truck sweeping the street; food and souvenir vendors get ready; knots of people gather; we see "A crowd. Waiting"-faceless, but each differentiated. The two lines of watchers, on either side of the street, have the abstract crackle-and-pop of Crews' first picture books. Visually, one of Crews' snazziest creations-and pretty terrific at capturing the many moods and shadings of a parade too.

Captures the color and excitement of a hometown parade with floats, antique cars, bands, flags, crowds, and other wonderful things

The illustrations are a different style, but he loves picking out the instruments and pretending to read along.

My son's eternal favorite! Every child gets caught up in the fun of a parade! Beautiful pictures. Simple words. Pure joy.

No where did you state that there was NO DUST JACKET. I bought this to be autographed by the author. Disappointing!

Very few authors have Donald Crews' ability to make a linear story so interesting and abstract. As in "Sail Away" and many other books, Crews places enough twists and turns into his straightforward story to make it interesting and imaginative. This story, stripped to its essentials, is about people, animals, and machinery parading down a street. There are very few words, and the action is in strict chronological order. Crews turns his genius upon this simple premise, and delivers an extraordinarily clever book.

The festivities begin at dawn with a street cleaner lighting a sign that announces there is no parking today because of a parade. Other preparations begin, illustrated by spare drawings.

"Buttons,

balloons,

and flags for sale.

Hot dogs,

pretzels,

ice cream,

and soda

to buy."

Next is a two-page spread with three words ("A crowd. Waiting."), and lines of people on either side of the street; it's a daring move that works because of the illustration. Crews' bold graphic style emphasizing color and shape rather than detail, although he's able to vary the shapes, poses, and attitudes of the crowd.

Another two-page spread ("Here it comes!"), and the big, splashy parade begins! We never know exactly what the parade is about (it concerns travel), but as the procession marches past our eyes, we see flags of many nations, a "strutting drum major" followed by wind instruments and percussion, floats (including a ship-a pun on "Crews?"), green and pink baton twirlers, vintage bicycles, autos, and a brand new fire engine. You can feel the crowd's anticipation and excitement-taking pictures, pointing, climbing on parental backs for a better view, and throwing confetti at the fire engine.

In yet another winning touch, Crews shows what happens when the parade is over, and the people have scattered: A street cleaner ends the parade just as it had started it. Another superior work by Crews for the toddler crowd, and another triumph for Greenwillow publishing. (This review refers to the "library edition.") Obviously, it's recommended highly!

A street parade is full of sights, excitement, and fun that small children may find disorienting, while the noise level and the pace of the procession make it difficult for them to ask questions about what is happening. This book, in keeping with Donald Crews' many books of this type, presents the events and elements of a parade with simple narration, beginning with a "no parking" sign and a gathering crowd, proceeding through a series of displays and groups, and ending with the dispersing crowd making way for the street-cleaner truck.

In his inimitable style, Crews manages to capture the movement and excitement of a street parade, allowing young children to enjoy the experience at a safe remove. This book will not only enhance their experience when viewing a parade, but also allow them to relive the experience afterward. It's a quick read with only a few well-chosen words per page, and it repeats well. Not everyone will love Crews' distinctive artistic style, but it is quite popular with preschoolers and his good writing helps to balance it.

My 18-month-old daughter loves this book. The simple story builds with just the right amount of aniticipation and the illustrations build right along with it. Great book for a girl or boy.
