This review is from: Richard Scarry's Cars and Trucks and Things That Go (Hardcover)This was my husband's favorite book from his childhood; since his copy was very worn, I bought a new copy for him to share with our son.
My son loves the book--he reaches for it and picks it up, and when we're reading to him he grabs for all the pictures; he's very interested!
I've never been the world's biggest Richard Scarry fan, but this book is way better than I thought it would be, too--it's so funny. I love the frightened parking meter and other funny details, and finding Goldbug on each set of pages can be quite challenging.
Cars and Trucks and Things That Go is an entertaining book that can hold the whole family's attention!

My son (3 1/2) loves this book. The genius of the book is that it leaves so much of the story up to my son's (and my) imagination.
It really became part of our life in a big way with any real life situation, construction site, airport, etc getting the same scrutiny that the scenes in Scarry's book does.
I think this book helps meet any child's natural curiosity about the world and presents the world in a cheerful, friendly, slightly odd, curious and detailed way that is wonderful for any child.
This book also helped my son really understand right from wrong - he quickly decided that he was the 'officer flossy' character in the book, not the naughty 'dingo dog'. And took it as his role, as 'officer flossy', to spot naughty behavior in people around him, including his parents, and occasionally my little 'officer flossy' gives tickets.
