And with literally hundreds of things to look at, youngsters will spend hours trying to find Goldbug on every page.

Reviews - What do customers think about Cars and Trucks and Things That Go (Giant Little Golden Book)?
Family favorite Jun 16, 2008
Both our sons loved this book . I bought this for our grandson, who, I am sure, will have as much fun looking for Goldbug as his dad did some 30 years ago.
My grandson's new favorite May 30, 2008
I purchased this for a grandson's 2nd birthday and he just loves it. He has it virtually memorized by now but it is still his first choice at bedtime.
Eventually absorbing for my toddler May 21, 2008
I bought this book with Scarry's A Day at the Airport book to help entertain my 23 month old during a cross country flight. My son wasn't as absorbed in Cars and Trucks as I'd hoped he be during the flight but in the weeks since he has been asking for the "Trucks" book every day. We narrate some of the pictures but he also spends some time looking at book every day on his own, paging through the book and absorbed in the illustrations (and commenting on the pictures occasionally, or at least as much as a near 2 year old can). We have other books with photos of vehicles which also interest him but this book so far seems to have more lasting appeal. I think it's the combination of the sheer volume and variety of the vehicles, interesting animals driving them, and just lots going on on each page.
Delightful trip down memory lane Apr 6, 2008
I recall reading this book to my younger sister many years ago. I recently purchased this for a 6 year old. He squealed with delight. It is his favorite R S book.
Richard Scarry books are classics - great for young & old. Delightful pictures & so fun to look at!
Wonderful picture book Mar 21, 2008
Our 19 month old grandson loves Cars, Trucks and Things That Go, so this book is perfect for him. It is not too old for him. He looks and looks at the pictures on the pages and says the name of the object over and over. He has learned many new words from having this book.
