    An entomological deconstruction of America s obsession with speed and motion Poses the highway as a cite of disordered exchange and anxiety The motorist is both weeping and laughing knowing disaster is inevitable Trucks become pickles Pickles become trucks Hellish.

    I don t generally put children s books on Goodreads This is an exception because I have three boys, each eight years apart, and I have probably read this books a few hundred times, including at least once a day for the last few weeks.It is amazing and awful at the same time It takes forever to read because it is so involved and detailed, in addition to being 70 or so pages long We have gone through a few copies, and my husband now refuses to read it because he says he would never bring it int I don t generally put children s books on Goodreads This is an exception because I have three boys, each eight years apart, and I have probably read this books a few hundred times, including at least once a day for the last few weeks.It is amazing and awful at the same time It takes forever to read because it is so involved and detailed, in addition to being 70 or so pages long We have gone through a few copies, and my husband now refuses to read it because he says he would never bring it into the house again But, I had to They just love it so much My favorite thing regarding this book, though, is when my 19yo son reads it to my 3yo because once a day from me is not nearly enough of Ma and Pa and Pickles and Penny Pig and all the other things that go.Sweet revenge

    Read this to both kids approximately 18 million times, looking for Goldbug on every page.Mistress Mouse and her minuscule tow truck are the unsung heroes of intricate Busytown traffic.

    Like many other children, my son is OBSESSED with vehicles Wheels Cars Tyres Trucks Trains Diggers you get the idea With that comes a propensity towards a certain type of book non fiction, diagrammatical, straightforward, terminology based Which is great, because that s what he s into I try to jazz up these reads with ad libbed extra factoids and fun traffic noises But after the tenth or eleventh such book on its twentieth or thirtieth reading, I am done Reading labelled engine pa Like many other children, my son is OBSESSED with vehicles Wheels Cars Tyres Trucks Trains Diggers you get the idea With that comes a propensity towards a certain type of book non fiction, diagrammatical, straightforward, terminology based Which is great, because that s what he s into I try to jazz up these reads with ad libbed extra factoids and fun traffic noises But after the tenth or eleventh such book on its twentieth or thirtieth reading, I am done Reading labelled engine parts does get a little dry after a while If only there were another way cue Richard Scarry Who I can t thank enough for his refreshing take on the genre Combining information, mockumentary, eye spy and story in equal measure, Cars and Trucks and Things that Go is the solution to boring vehicle book fatigue The busy pages are crammed full of labelled illustrations of every mode of transport you could imagine and loads of new vocabulary to learn, even for young vehicle experts These are accompanied by two main stories one of a pig family on a journey to a picnic, and another of a cat police officer chasing a terrible dog driver Many exciting subplots ensue along the way, including a detour through the airport and a car on fire The language used addresses the child head on and involves them in the action Look , Now what , Oh no On every page are questions and puzzles that encourage close observation of the details The humour is just fantastic I enjoy the surreal pies, melons and pickles that I recognise from Scarry s other books My son prefers the doughnut car and Auntie Pastry , which have both resulted in much hilarity Props to Scarry for including some female characters, and not just prissy ones The badass police officer, the mechanic who repairs trucks, the driver of a sports car Ma puts the snow chains on and Grandma owns a farm and operates a tractor This representation is so important Richard Scarry was ahead of his time, and again, I m grateful for that.My son adores this book, is invested in the story and is engaged in learningabout his favourite subject Most importantly, he finds it a lot of fun and less importantly, so do I Scarry has not put a foot wrong here, and both myself and my son would highly recommend

    I keep wanting to buy books as presents for toddlers I know, but then when I get to the bookstore, I draw a blank on which books have really been a hit with Leo and me So I m going to put a few books on a shelf here to remind myself, for when I need to buy books for kids.I remember reading Richard Scarry to a child I babysat for in high school, but I still let this book sit on our shelf for a while unread We discovered it a few weeks ago, and we re kind of blown away by it well, I am There I keep wanting to buy books as presents for toddlers I know, but then when I get to the bookstore, I draw a blank on which books have really been a hit with Leo and me So I m going to put a few books on a shelf here to remind myself, for when I need to buy books for kids.I remember reading Richard Scarry to a child I babysat for in high school, but I still let this book sit on our shelf for a while unread We discovered it a few weeks ago, and we re kind of blown away by it well, I am There is just so much to discover in this book, and so many Easter eggs to find I also feel like it s really right brained You can read it however you want to Just lounge around on one page for ten minutes and then hit some other random page We ve worked on it for several weeks and I think I ve only gotten to the last page once Anyway, I just find this book so charming Leo spent a week obsessed with how, on the second page, Dingo Dog runs over the parking meters First he had to understand what it was all about What are parking meters Why does Officer Flossie have a bicycle etc Then, he just thought it was hysterically funny that Dingo Dog was RUNNING OVER PARKING METERS Dingo Dog We don t run over parking meters We put money in parking meters I haven t tried any other Richard Scarry books yet, so can t compare I do think I d especially go out of my way to buy this for a child with a particularly visual or right brained parent for ages 2,34

    This is the coolest classic storybook So many things are happening on each page, it truly encourages a dialogue with your little person and a keen eye to seek out that silly Goldbug hiding on each page It took us three sittings to finish this book, but it was worth it to see if Officer Flossy ever caught up to that rascally Dingo Dog

    I read this to my son almost every night He loves finding goldbug on every page.
