Today Brooks reviews Things that go by Roger Priddy.
Lots of folks like to snuggle up with a good book before going to sleep. I, however, often like to snuggle with one as I sleep. Because I enjoy Things that go so much, last night I chose to cuddle with it all night long. At one point I grew restless and would have loved to look at the pictures some more, but sadly my glasses were out of reach on my chest of drawers and my night light was too dim. So I did the next best thing. I drifted back to sleep thinking of the bold and colorful illustrations. I must have dreamed about the extensive collection of vehicles and equipment presented in this book because when I awoke this morning, they were fresh on my mind and I was able to imitate the sounds many of them make.
On her last trip to my house, Grammy Dee and I walked down the street to a construction site. Because I have repeatedly studied Things that go, I was able to point out (btw I love to point) the concrete truck and the backhoe loader. I love it when I can turn Grammy Dee’s visits into educational experiences for her.
