“Clean, fresh, and just plain happy.” - The Horn Book
What Do Wheels Do All Day?
Illustrated by Giles Laroche
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
"A short rhyming text…provides the framework for Laroche's impressive 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. Clean, fresh, and just plain happy." — The Horn Book, starred review
"The anticipatory quality of the rhymes and the detailed visuals will help children to guess the next word, making this a fun choice for storytime. It will also be a hit with the train- and truck-loving crowd." — School Library Journal
"This handsome, large-format picture book points out common uses of wheels in a short, rhyming text, brightly illustrated with distinctive collage illustrations." — Booklist
