It must be said that this is one of the childhood books I remember most. I can recall making a beeline for the card catalog and heading right for Richard Scarry’s Cars and Trucks and Things That Go. My older brother and I used to make a game out of who could spot the “Goldbug” first. We would turn page after page, shouting and pointing at the “Goldbug.”
As soon as our little page ripping kiddos get a handle on their book vandalism, Cars and Trucks and Things that Go is coming to our home. But for now, we have board books and a version of Eric Carle’s From Head to Toe that is about 3 pages long and doesn’t seem as thorough as Mr. Carle may have intended.
