We bought the whole series of Amazing Machine books and my two year old son loves them. The pictures are big and bright and really capture the imagination. Perfect bedtime reading - the only problem being that he wants me to read them all !

My 2 1/5 year old loves this book. Its one of his favorite for bedtime. It is beautifully drawn. Graphics are big and easy to understand. I like it as it makes it easy to explain the concept of the earth and moon. The characters are really cute. Definately a boys book

Format: Paperback
My son loved other books from this series, Dazzling Diggers, Terrific Trains and Flashing Fire Engines. And then my little girl was also delighted by the fast pace, catchy phrases and the mouse, chicken and rabbit characters. Roaring Rockets has the same delightful characters and brightly-coloured illustrations but I felt cheated with the story. It seemed to be missing its usual spunk and educational content.

Excellent! My sons loves this book and the rest of the books in the set (SIX AMAZING MACHINE BOOKS, EACH WITH STORY CD. (AMAZING AEROPLANES/TERRIFIC TRAINS/FLASHING FIRE ENGINES/TOUGH TRUCKS/TREMENDOUS TRACTORS/DAZZLING DIGGERS/COOL CARS). We read one or two books every night, and the CD's are played on repeat most days. The CD's have great sound effects. They are very informative for both child and adult, so you don't get bored. My sons now knows most of the words to books by heart, and is very pleased with him self as he thinks he is reading. I would recommend this set for all machine mad children/families.
