Editorial Reviews

Review

“Biggs has a cheery cartooning style that’s reminiscent of R. Crumb and ideal for populating his oversized pages with a multitude of players and detail. With running visual jokes and mini-narratives adding to the fun, Biggs gives readers lots to take in and enjoy.” (Publishers Weekly)

“In a visual feast for fans of wheeled vehicles large and small, Biggs presents a series of high-density street scenes done in an amiably rumpled cartoon style. A glory ride for young car, truck, train, bus and trolley devotees.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Fun and learning are ideally balanced in this engaging trek that will be revisited umpteen times before every tidbit of labeling, conversation, and oddity is discovered in this wealth of urban wheels.” (School Library Journal)

“Once you embark on this wild interactive journey, don’t expect to get home for quite a while.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

“Everything Goes: On Land is sort of the perfect gift book for a child, any child, regardless of a predisposition for vehicular transportation or not.” (Betsy Bird, Fuse #8/SLJ blog)

If your child loves buses, bikes, taxis, subways, ice cream trucks, singing guitars, and funny people--this is a GREAT book. The pictures are great and there are some upclose pics of trailers, bikes, and cars. You can search for different things on each page--so you can read 100 times and never get bored. My son asked for it over dinner!

I bought this title for my son's 2nd birthday, knowing he would love it. Before getting this, his favorite book was Rotraut Susanne Berner's "In Town All Year 'Round"In the Town All Year 'Round, which has lots of great seek-and-find elements. His love of all things that GO (cars, trucks, busses, and especially trains!) made this book a no-brainer.

I was not disappointed! We look through it every night before bed. Some nights he even wants to sleep with it.

This book works on so many levels. The colors are bright and saturated, so the book begs to be looked at. The illustrations are a lot of fun and since there is so much going on, there is something new and funny to see each time you open it.

One of the strongest selling points for me is that I can imagine my son enjoying this book in many different ways for years to come. There is a bit of a journey that happens, so it could read as a story, where the child or caregiver uses visual clues to provide more narrative. For the younger set who have shorter attention spans, it works as a seek-and-find, which I have found helps to build vocabulary and patience. And in addition to the busy seek-and-find pages, there are pages that offer a fun cross section highlighting the layout of a motor home, or label the parts on a certain type of vehicle.

My three year old son picked this book out at our local book shop. The cover is eye catching. The story is thoughtful and intelligent conversation between a son and his father. The dialog and illustrations are very informative. This book has a lot of different levels. He doesn't get the look for the numbers on the page yet, but I am sure he will in the future. I am confident we will be reading it over and over in the upcoming years. We are already looking forward to the next book in the series.

From cover to cover, Everything Goes: On Land is chuck full of cars, trucks, bikes, trains -- tons of land-going city vehicles. Eye-catching and completely riveting for all transportation book aficionados, Biggs doesn't leave anything out in his jam-packed, cartoony illustrations. Even the odd, not oft seen vehicles make an appearance. Double Decker Bus. Elevated Train. Penny-farthing. Bird with a hat. (No, that's not a typo. There really are birds with hats. What's that got to do with vehicles? I have no idea, but the birds are pretty silly and appear in all the city pictures along with a lot other out-of-place things! Channeling Richard Scarry and Goldbug, perhaps?)

This is the kind of seek-and-find book one could easily stare at for hours, days, and not see everything, and there's also an interesting storyline weaving through the book about a little boy to consider. Henry drives into the city with his dad to a surprise location and the two talk [via speech balloons] about all the vehicles they see along the way, discussing some in great detail. Through a number of simple vehicle diagrams, the reader learns along with Henry about the interworkings of a car, tractor-trailer rig, RV, bicycle, and motorcycle. To add to the educational experience, Everything Goes: On Land also works as a challenging counting book. Readers can count one-by-one to 100, searching for each number in order.

The side-stories are quite amusing as well. One speedy driver gets pulled over by a cop, much to my son's amusement. And, my son gets a huge kick out of the tuna seeking cat and pocket-watch carrying, late bunny. But, more than anything else, my son adores the pages with the trains, especially the steam-powered locomotive.

My boys love this book! It's not much of a story book, but it is captivating because of the pictures. They are constantly pulling it out and staring at it. And their new favorite thing is "I spy" with this. If your kids like vehicles, I highly recommend this.

I first got this book when my son was two and a half. He loved the pictures and we would spend tons of time pointing and finding fun things in the book. Now at almost five we spent over fourth minutes finding all the numbers hidden in the book. This is one of the only books that has consistently held his attention throught the years

A fun, read that teaches kids all about different means of transportation. Each of the busy, brightly colored pages shows a variety of ways we can get around the city, from the subway, to trains, taxis, motorcycles, cars, trucks etc. One of the engaging things about this story are the captions found on each page by each different car, truck, motorcycle etc. This made if fun for the kids to find the different vehicles and learn what they do.

This is a great book to pick up. You can even have your child count the different vehicles found on each page, point out colors, and look for silly things pictured on each page. I highly recommend picking it up!
