This quirkily illustrated picture book teaches young children their colours and features all kinds of vehicles, as seen on the 'journey home from Grandpa's'. The tune on the CD is the same as 'the big ship sails on the ally ally-o' which fits the text very well. My three year old loves it, and making up our own version based on the cars, vans and trucks we see has become a regular habit on the journey home from Grandpa's, friends, shopping, anywhere in fact!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic for vehicle lovers! 14 Oct 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Any child who likes vehicles will love this book and song. The book follows the journey the family are making in the car. Many vehicles are featured and there are lots of details in the pictures. Also good for learning colours.

3.0 out of 5 stars good, but had no c.d to go with it. 8 Dec 2010
This product is normarly a great book as the pre school i've worked in has it, that's why i thought it would work for the children i care for. When it arrived it didn't have the c.d which really is the book you need that c.d to make it fun and educational, but we make it work.

It has been a hit with my son for a long time, he loves it a lot! Perfect to imagine a long trip not boring at all and to tell about vehicles. Great plus having the song and the animation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! 23 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this after reading all the other great reviews and couldn't have made a better choice. My vehicle-adoring almost 3-year old immediately took to the colourful and querky pictures and learnt the song in no time! He surprised my hubby and me the other day by sitting down with the book on his lap, turning the pages and singing along to the book as if he could read the words!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great resource... 19 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Been looking for this for a while and was delighted to come across it with a CD. Have the story mat and vehicles to go with it and the children at school love it. Song is easy to sing along to and the illustrations in the book are vibrant and child-like. Perfect book to have aside when learning about transport or storytime.
