Car Seat week concludes with a bold choice, I am pleased to present, Richard Scarry’s Cars and Trucks from A to Z. There will be many Richard Scarry reviews in the future, but I have chosen this book because it is shaped like the apple car, a staple of Richard Scarry works and a true classic. Perhaps the best known of the Scarry cars, the apple car is rivaled only by the bananamobile and the corn car. What makes the apple car so great? Well, for one thing a worm, a worm without arms, drives it so you do the math. The book goes on to feature all the young people favorites including ambulances, fire trucks and dump trucks.
The late Richard Scarry was an extremely popular children’s author and illustrator. How popular? He published over 300 books. Scarry’s signature style features animals taking on human roles as they explore the world and teaching the alphabet usually using moving vehicles. Perhaps the best part of the Richard Scarry experience is that it once again allows me to recreate fond childhood memories for LTD.
