The Book

This is a delightful story about an adorable group of farm animals who discover what does and does not have wheels.  It is a perfect read for that targeted age-group.  It is a fun pick for a read aloud. 

A lama has no wheels. 

A turtle has no wheels.

A cat has no wheels.  BUT...

A skateboard, a tractor, and a bike do! 

The animals decide to give the wheel objects a go. They zoom off and the farmer tries to hinder their adventure but she has no wheels to catch up and stop them.  Oh my!  The farmer discovers an ox pulling a cart with wheels. She climbs aboard and the race to catch the animals and bring them safely back to the farm is on. BUT...

"Vrooming, zooming, never stopping.

Up ahead a zebra crossing.

Hit the breaks!  OH NO!



Now nobody has wheels. Fortunately a truck driving chicken pulls up with wheels and it's rescue time for all!  Hurray!

This silly story will gets kids giggling and the illustrations are wonderful.  They are full of activity, expression and fun!  The story includes lots of repetition that will have kids interacting to help the read aloud along.  I highly recommend the book.
