Our Booklist: “The Big Book of Things That Go

by Erika

S loves “The Big Book of Things That Go” so much that we’ve gone through approximately two rolls of tape fixing three copies of this book. I don’t have any photos because a tragic monster truck accident pushed a glass of juice onto the last remaining copy. It’s an oversized book with hundreds of photographs of real trucks, trains, cars, hot air balloons, motorcycles, planes, emergency vehicles, construction equipment … basically anything that “goes.” Each photo has a two or three sentence caption with details about the vehicle, which is why, at age two, S was able to explain the difference to me between a bulldozer, digger and excavator.

One of the best days of John’s life is when S, at age 2, pointed to a picture of a large dump truck and said, “articulated dump truck.” For ages 1-6. Younger kids like to look at the pictures, toddlers like to ask a lot of questions about the pictures, and my pre-schooler likes to make me feel dumb by quizzing me about the different attributes of the vehicles shown in the pictures.
