Review: Wheels

Big wheels and little wheels. Two wheels and four wheels.

All kinds of wheels!

Wheels is another classic book from the partnership of Sally Sutton and Brian Lovelock.

With rhyming text and big, bold and colourful illustrations, Wheels will be a new favourite for many readers.

The pictures show two riders on bicycles who see many vehicles on their travels.

A red motorbike speeds past on two wheels. A semi trailer has many wheels rumbling as they head uphill.

Taxis, ambulances, buses, fire trucks, and rubbish trucks are all amongst the vehicles on show. Each with a special job.

And when a young member of the family has a birthday, they get a wheeled birthday surprise. Soon the whole family is out riding.

On the final page of Wheels is a diagram with all the parts of a wheel (rim, hub, tyre, tread, lug nuts and valve) clearly labelled and explained.

Even the endpapers of this book are decorated to match the theme, with tyre tread marks criss crossing the pages in varying grey tones

Wheels is perfect for sharing with the littlest vehicle enthusiasts, and will keep them enthralled.
