New booklist: things that go

Around the World by Matt Phelan Toddlers’ fascination with vehicles is well documented—see today’s discussion of Machines Go to Work in the City on Calling Caldecott—but who doesn’t appreciate the excitement of a fast car or a ocean journey?

We recommend fiction and nonfiction featuring planes, trains, automobiles, and other things that go for young readers of all ages. These titles were all published in the last few years and reviewed in The Horn Book Magazine.

We’d love to hear from you: what vehicle books drive you wild?
