I bought this for my partner's son who is 2 and fascinated by all things transport-y. He loved it immediately. The lift-up flap action went down well. I thought the rhyme throughout was a bit lame, but then I'm not 2.
It doesn't tell quite the whole story - but everything in conjunction with the Usbourne 'going on a plane sticker book' they did. Really good book - fun lift the flaps - lots of information in the pictures and lots to talk about - text is limited but that's not important. Possibly too much crammed into the book for my 1 year old who I bought if for but my 3 year old loved it! and still does! It definitely helped her understanding/intrigue of going away even though she'd done it before.
