Young Reader Reaction: My son picked this book up instantly and has not put it down much. He loves vehicles of all kinds and the sounds they make. I had a borrowed copy to review. My son loved it so much that it became evident that he wasn't going to give it back so we had to buy another copy. We read it every night and he takes it to bed with him. By far his favorite book!

Adult Reader Reaction: The concept was perfect, the pictures were great and it made my child light up when he read it. I loved it!

Pros: This is a fun book with a high toddler interest factor - and engaging pictures.

Cons: None.

Borrow or Buy: BUY IT! They will love to read it over and over. I have already bought a copy for us and another copy to give as a gift.


Educational Themes: By lifting the flaps, toddlers and preschoolers have a chance to build fine motor skills. This book also helps them connect specific sounds to specific types of vehicles. They also learn about different kinds of vehicles. Take a moment to talk about what they're used for
