Wheels are busy. On banana carts, they’re pushed; on dog wagons, they’re pulled. On bikes they’re pedaled forward; on tow trucks, towed backward! "Wheels work, and wheels play. / That’s what WHEELS do all day!" The rhyming text is written in both English and Spanish in this dynamic board book, each language clearly differentiated with color. Laroche’s extraordinary three-dimensional paper-relief artwork makes every colorful scenario pop, whether the wheels are spinning, whirring, racing, or rolling.

Praise For…

"A short rhyming text in very large type provides the framework for Laroche's impressive bas-relief cut-paper collages. . . . Best of all, the wide, single-scene spreads create their own staccato rhythm, with wheels of all sizes punctuating the pages like beats of a drum." --Horn Book, starred Horn Book, Starred

"This handsome, large-format picture book points out common uses of wheels in a short, rhyming text, brightly illustrated with distinctive collage illustrations. . . . A simply written, well-illustrated picture book." —Booklist Booklist, ALA

"The striking collage art consists of paper cutouts that have been layered to provide dimension and enhanced by drawing and painting. . . . A fun choice for storytime."–SLJ School Library Journal —
