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.
