Things that GO! is the theme this January at momstown programs! Maybe you'll be making some car crafts at Art & Play, creating a snack that looks like a plane at Junior Chef or making baby footprints into a train at Baby Basics!
Babies & Toddlers:
Freight Train by Donald Crews
This simple but impressive book with just a few lines of text per page, introduces children to a freight train with different coloured boxcars. Helps with colour identification and naming.
I Love Trains! by Philemon Sturges
This cute board book introduces children to trains, showing engines, cars, and all of the things the cars carry. Simple text and bright pictures.
Airplane Flight! by Susanna Leonard Hill
This lift-the-flap adventure board book takes the young readers from preparing to fly, the inside of an airplane, to liftoff, to landing! Fun to explore the parts of an airplane and lift the flaps to discover new things.
Toddlers and Preschoolers:
Cars and Trucks and Things that Go by Richard Scarry
This is a great book with all 'things that go‘ that the pig family encounters on their way to the beach. It‘s a long book however so I would probably suggest to look at a selection of pages with a group. This is a large, oversize book with tons of detail in the illustrations, so you could spend a lot of time on each page finding the different kinds of 'things that go‘ (and worry less about the storyline)
Cars by Patricia Hubbell
Written in simple rhyming text, this book shows all kinds of different cars with fun pictures and rhymes. SUV, compacts, limousines, convertibles, taxis, etc. The cars are busy all day!
Fred and Ted Like to Fly by Peter Eastman
Written as part of the Cat and the Hat 'bright and early board books‘, this is written in the rhyming style of Dr. Seuss. Fred and Ted like to fly their airplanes, and have a little adventure to a beach on a deserted island. Simple story with cute pictures.
