What did you like about the book? Part of a series (First Words), this book is nicely sized for little hands and printed on sturdy board pages. Fun for the young vehicle enthusiast! Each page depicts a vehicle with its name. Paired readers can count wheels, windows, and passengers, and look at the terrain in which the vehicles move. Readers ready for a little more story can talk about where the passengers may be going and what they might do there. Especially fun are the pages that have windows cut through to show part of the next or previous illustration.
