In April, I did a review of Brian Biggs' Everything Goes On Land. I likened Biggs to a modern day Richard Scarry. And similar to Scarry, Biggs has expanded formats for his Everything Goes series. In addition to the oversized picture books, you can now get the great images and work of Brian Biggs in a board book format for the toddler set. There are also several I Can Read books that are based on Biggs' Everything Goes.
If you are looking for gifts this holiday season for young readers with a penchant for books that feature vehicles and various forms of transportation, here you go.

Thank you to Harper Collins for sharing these books with me. I can't wait to share them with teachers and librarians that I work with, and I know a few beginning readers who are going to particularly enjoy the Early Reader series.
