We see them everyday! Sep 3, 2008
My nephew is two and loves this book! He can anme almost everything in the book as we point ot it and becuse the pictures are actual photos, he recognizes them when we are out. Yesterday, as we were driving around, he said, "There's an excavator over there, see it, Ashy?" So cute. He has the dinosaurs book in this series, too, but I will be getting them all. So big and colorful. Love them.
Boys and their toys Apr 2, 2008
Both of my 6 year old and my 2.5 year old sons love this book. They are lovers of anything that goes. They never get tired of looking at the brightly colored photographs and hearing the descriptions of the vehicles.
Great 3 year old's book. Mar 25, 2008
I saw these reviews when I logged on to purchase a new copy of this great book. This is certainly one of the best books in the toddler's picture-book genre. My 3 year old son has loved this book since he was 2. My experience is similar to other reviewers. My son has memorized every picture and word of text in the book, and recites the detailed text verbatim, and wants to review the book with me cover to cover almost every night. I now know more about road-building heavy equipment than I ever cared to know.
My son is obsessed with this book Feb 9, 2008
I am another parent who has to buy a second copy of this book because my young toddler has destroyed his first copy by looking at it and carrying it around day and night. One caveat for those with small children, and one for those with older ones: the names of many of the things that go are long and complicated for little ones to learn; and the book was written for a British market, so some of the names, items and vehicles are not equivalent to the American ones (many examples of this on the "Emergency Vehicles" pages), which I imagine older boys may find confusing or irritating. But overall, it's the pictures that they'll love and keep coming back to, not the words. I'm constantly amazed at how my son's interest in this book never flags. Myself, I am heartily sick of it. But here I am on this site buying another copy, and was amused to see that so many other parents had had to do the same -- and it's not a badly constructed book! It has a hard cover and good-quality pages. They've just had to take a lot of punishment, and our copy's now made more of tape than of paper...
Love this book Sep 12, 2007
This is one of my girls' favorite books, beloved for years. Its been popular with any kid that visits as well, except for the pink-and-ruffles crowd.
