Cars and Trucks and Things That Go

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAJune cycles through a lot of books but her current favorite is the Richard Scarry classic Cars and Trucks and Things That Go.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIt 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…).

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHer favorite part is trying to find Goldbug on every page.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThere he is! You can just make out his little Goldbug head behind the wheel of the red and blue car.

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.

Thanks, Anna!
