What to expect: Things that Go, Animal Friends, Adventure, and Fun
Do you have an armchair racer or a little fan of all things that go in your home? Based on look and shape alone, the Wonder Wheels books are like magnets for toddlers and preschoolers fascinated by anything with, you guessed it, wheels.
All of the stories in this adorable board book series star the same set of cheerful and friendly animals—Lion, Bear, Croc, and Giraffe—heading out on a joyful adventure. Each of the four books are shaped like their namesake vehicle and feature a set of bold, printed wheels on the cover: Birthday Bus (a red bus shape), Camper Fun (a blue camper van shape), Safari Park (a green jeep shape), and Train Trip (a purple and red train shape). The bright illustrations pop from the pages and instantly capture the attention of young readers.
Beep! Beep! In Safari Park, the friends all take a ride through the safari park in a green jeep, making new friends along the way. To end the day, they meet up with Lion’s family for a very yummy dinner.
All aboard! In Train Trip, Giraffe boards the purple and red train so he can meet his friends. At each new stop, Bear, Lion, and Croc board the train that is heading to a perfect summer destination: the beach!
It’s outdoor adventure time! In Camper Fun, Croc arrives to pick up his pals in a blue camper van. After stopping for some snacks and a surprise, the friends settle in to their campsite. When it begins to rain and the camp trip appears to be ruined, Croc saves the day with a special surprise.
Shhh! Bear is the town’s bus driver and, in Birthday Bus, it turns out that his passengers have a special surprise planned for him. Everyone loves a birthday celebration with friends, and that’s just what the readers will get.
With brief and joyful text that is bound together by the friendship of four sweet animals, this little book collection is perfect for summer reading, road trips, or any travel adventures. They’re the perfect size for stashing in the backseat car pocket, a backpack, or for stacking on the nightstand. Clever Publishing should take a victory lap around the library and pop a little wheelie because the Wonder Wheels books are great fun!
