Richard Scarry’s Cars and Trucks and Things that go.
Look for the gold-bug on every one of the 69 pages of this lovely book. So much detail on each page, it keeps children occupied for ages as they look through page upon page of real and imagined vehicles.
My children loved it the moment an old and worn copy was spotted at their great-grandmom’s house. The whole visit was spent sitting with Gran looking from page to page, seeking out the goldbug, looking for fun vehicles. It was great.
