Author Betty Mermelsteinabout this book: Wagon Wheels follows a little girl as she goes down the sidewalk with her wagon. As her wheels spin around, she sees many interesting items that she adds to her wagon. They become piled high, and she knows they will become wonderful play things for her when she gets home.

I was inspired by my own collecting days as a little girl when there were more discarded things by the curbs of the sidewalks than there are today. I didn't care if they were dirty or broken; they were so interesting and different!

The book was originally written as a poem years before I thought about making it into a book.

I want children to carry on their sense of play and imagination with this book. My illustrator, Cheryl Chan, made the pictures so colorful and adorable.

Wagon Wheels is also written in rhyming form with a predictable refrain, so children can more easily read/memorize it.
