One of his first words was tractor but he has now branched out to diggers, lorries, dustbin lorries, cranes etc all of which he can recognise on the streets and attempt to say. Walking past a building site or driving along in the car has never been so exciting. The rhymes are catchy and easy to repeat and Callum is picking up more and more of them, including joining in for the 'shhh' at the end. I can't rate this book more highly - both Callum and I think it's fantastic.
Brilliant book if you have a toddler that just won't sit still and read with you. Great colours, pictures and wording.
The pages immediately held the attention of the little boy with their bold designs. I also like the way that all the pages are tabbed, making it easier for him to turn the page.
It is a mystery to me why boys are drawn to pictures of heavy vehicles so early in their lives - the enthusiastic response to this book was quite remarkable and I am very pleased I got it for him. Instant hit! There are not many pages in it but it doesn't seem to matter, as he quite like just holding the book and carrying it around with him.
A brilliant book for a small child - you can't go wrong with it in my opinion.
It is probably more for boys but to be honest she loves books and when reading this she repeated alot of the words i was saying.
There isnt a story to this but the information given on what vehicle does what is very good.
What i also like about this book is that its a very thick Board book and is very sturdy, would take quite a bit for little hands to destroy this.
Overall I think £5.38 is a lot of money for a kids book BUT it is very good for what it is and a very nice edition.
