June cycles through a lot of books but her current favorite is the Richard Scarry classic Cars and Trucks and Things That Go.
It was a gift from my good friend Anna when June was just a wee thing. It’s only now June has been able to lock on to the colorful illustrations. Every manner of machinery is depicted: ambulances, tow trucks, tourist buses, garbage trucks, forklifts, motor homes and plenty of weirdo vehicles as well (the jack-o-lantern car, the pickle car, the alligator mobile…).
I never had this book when I was a kid, but it was a favorite of Jake’s. We love reading it with June….even though it’s 69 pages! Definitely not the ideal book to read when hustling a toddler into bed by the 7 p.m. bedtime. Not surprisingly, June hits the sack late most nights.
