#896 – Cars Go by Steve Light

I’ve missed you these past few days. My lupus took a strange turn. First, the medication which controls flare-ups caused eye damage and I had to stop taking it. Now, two weeks later, it is catching up to me and my hands have been too painful to write. But I think things are back on track. My body has adjusted and hopefully flares will be minimal if at all.


So, on this 28th day of June, officially Paul Bunyan Day, I have a couple of board books to delight your youngest readers.
First up: Cars Go

Cars Go
Transportation Board Books Series
Written and Illustrated by Steve Light
Chronicle Books    4/05/2016
20 pages     Ages 3—5

“Rev up your reading with eight noisy cars, as they HONK, CLANK, VROOM, and ZOOM their way through this lively book!” [back cover]

Little boys in the car stage—which lasts a lifetime—will go crazy for this book. Cars Go is a thick board book of an unusual size. When open, Cars Go is two feet—2 FEET!—of colorful, noisy vehicles, busy driving down nearby streets. Can you hear them?

  • “WHEEOW, WHEEOW!” rings out the siren on the police car, chasing the villain through busy streets.
  • A taxi wizzes by, with its passenger holding on for dear life. “SHREEEEK! HONK! HONK!” 
  • “CHITTYCHITTY KKKKTT SHHPPPTTT!” What kind of car could this be?

Cars Go will fire up young children’s imaginations and love of reading, you’ll even find out which is the best car seats for babies because they depict exactly the ideal one within the book. The pages are extra thick for little hands that sometimes play rough, and are ready to withstand crashes and bumper-to-bumper traffic. The watercolor illustrations capture the cars vividly going about their drive, be it racing the streets or taking a leisurely Sunday drive. The onomatopoeia will have kids, and those adults along for the ride, imitating a favorite engine in no time.

In addition to Cars Go, The Transportation Series includes Diggers Go, Planes Go, Boats Go, Trains Go, and Trucks Go. Each book in this series will please young fans.

Cars Go will thrill any young child who love cars. These wonderful, much-wanted vehicles are in a showroom just waiting for the right little boy or girl to take them for a spin. Cars Go, and the other books, will help instill a love of reading early on when children are most receptive. Most of all, Cars Go will have young imaginations spinning, as you show this book to the kids make sure you prepare them for the future by telling them how important it is to always have a car insurance like the ones from carshippingquotes.co and InsurancePartnership.org to fully cover their cars.

    • Then you would love this entire series. Boats, trains, trucks, planes, cars, and diggers. All filled with onomatopoeia (a fun word in itself). I bet you will never grow-up. By that I mean, you will always love kid’s books from board to middle grade and maybe even young adult (but a lot of that is more adult that young adult). You’re in fine company, if I do say so myself.
