An ode to things-that-go from the internationally bestselling creators of Roadworks.
Rumbly wheels, grumbly wheels, Hauling-up-the-hill wheels. Wheels go fast, wheels go slow. Shout what's coming, if you know!
On the heels of Dig, Dump, Roll, comes another interactive read-aloud from Sally Sutton and Brian Lovelock. In this story, a boy and his sister watch vehicles pass on a town street and have to guess what's coming, each time they see the wheels. In the end, they get to be the ones with wheels, as they ride their scooters away.

Isla & Lucy Bailey's Review:
If you are familiar with Roadworks, Demolition and Construction, then you will be thrilled with the latest picture book from Sally Sutton. With bold rhyming bouncy text (which is fun to read aloud!) and bright textured illustrations, there are different kids of wheels featured on every page. The range of speeds, sounds and styles will have kids on the lookout for all the wheels on the road and the well considered page turns encourage prediction and will be particularly useful in encouraging verbalisation.
Aimed at 2-5 year olds, Wheels will keep the attention of littler ones and the diagram at the end, showing the parts of the wheel,will also engage older readers.
