Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Roger Priddy left school at 16 with just one qualification—in art. He went to Berkshire College of Art and Design and trained as an illustrator.  His first job in children’s books was working with the publisher Peter Usborne, at Usborne Publishing, and then he worked with Peter Kindersley at Dorling Kindersley, where he spent 16 years. Priddy became Creative Director of DK’s Children’s Division and was Managing Director of the children’s mass market publisher Funfax when it was acquired by DK.
 
In 2000, he created Priddy Books with John Sargent at St Martin’s Press to create innovative and imaginative titles for children, from first books for babies through early reference titles for older children. Since then, over 30 million copies of Roger's 200 plus books have sold worldwide, with five of his books—My Big Animal, My Big Truck, Happy Baby Words, Happy Baby Colors and Puppy and Friends—each selling over one million copies. He is also the author of Big Board First 100 Words; Big Board Books Colors, ABC, Numbers; and Bright Baby Noisy Monsters. His creativity has been recognized with numerous industry awards. Priddy lives in London with his wife Zena and their four children.

More About the Author

Roger Priddy is the creator of over two hundred best selling books for young children including Wipe Clean ABC, First 100 Words, and Fuzzy Bee.

When he was at school he couldn't decide between being a patisserie chef or going to art college. On the advice of his father he chose art college and trained as an illustrator before becoming a designer at Usborne Publishing.

Roger's love for children's early learning has led him to create some of the most successful children's non-fiction books, first at Dorling Kindersley (My First Word Book, Incredible Cross Sections and My First Cook Book) before he set up Priddy Books with St. Martins Press in New York where several of his books have sold over a million copies each including My Big Animal Book and Happy Baby Words.

In total he has sold over 65 million books worldwide and his books have been translated into over 30 languages.

He says "It is always rewarding to see a child enjoying and learning something from one of our books, especially the babies when you think it could be the first book they have ever seen.

I am very lucky to have a career where you get to think up fun ways to teach a kid how to write their letters and learn their first words whilst finding out about Dinosaurs at the same time!"

Roger lives with his wife Zena in London and Cork, Ireland (when it's not raining, which isn't very often!) They have four children Sam, Rose, Alannah and Gabriel (and a dog called Wallace) who have given him most of his best ideas for his books. He still loves baking bread and cakes!

I don't know what it is about 2 year old boys, but when they reach that age they become fascinated with machinery. I've experienced it with all of my nephews, and the latest addition to our family is no different.

This is a large-size, full-color, board book - meaning the pages are thick and sturdy. All it consists of are photographs of real motorized machinery, taken from various angles, with the names of each vehicle shown. There's a page devoted to types of cars, types of trains, types of boats, types of airplanes, types of construction vehicles, types of farm vehicles and types of emergency/city vehicles. So it covers all the bases and is full of images to bring joy to a little boy's heart.

My nephew reads this book every night with his father. Then he reads it over with me when I babysit him. There is just something so adorable seeing a 2 year old seriously pointing out a combine harvester or a dump truck as if it was the most important thing in the world. Not to mention the fact that it's a good item to use if you want the little one to have some quiet time. So if you've got a little boy in your family, or one that you need a gift for, I'd give this book two thumbs up.

This book was for a one year old boy. The pages are durable, with big pictures. He loves it! I would recommend to anyone that has a boy with a love for moving objects

I bought this book for my 2 year old nephew for Christmas - it was such a hit, he ended up taking the book to bed with him!! I felt like the world's best auntie. His mother was excited because it's a board book and he likes to turn pages so quickly and excitedly, she doesn't have to worry about him tearing the pages. Each page has a theme (like types of trains, or trucks) and shows different types of machines of that type. This is a MUST for those toddlers in your life with an obsession with autos!!

Our grandson can point to each of the machines in this book as we name them. It is the book he MUST read each day!

My kids LOVE LOVE cars, trains, trucks, etc. So I bought two of these for my 1.5 year old twin boys. I wish I had bought these books sooner. They LOVE them! Each page has so much variety, and my kids are now saying "taatoo" for "tractor". These books are awesome for 1+ year olds who love cars and trucks, and anything that moves. We mainly use these books during mealtime, it keeps them busy while we feed them. Of course my nanny has to clean the books after, but they are so easy to clean.

Disappointed. I must not have been paying attention when I bought this. There are no words other than just listing what each machine is so my little reader finds it boring. Most of the machines are one in the same. They use clever ways to list the same machines and vehicles to reach 100. Id pass, unless you just want a picture book for your child.
Ps, mine was for a two year old.

This book is a little unnecessary, I would get one of his other books. The first 100 animals book is a good one. I don't particularly care if my little ones know the difference between a street train, coal train, snow plow train, Eurostar train, or commuter train. I can't name them on sight, and I don't care if my daughter can. They are all trains.

My son loves this book! It is VERY durable (food, pee, mile, etc) and the pictures are great for learning. My son reads this book to me almost daily!
