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 in London and has three children, who have given him most of his best ideas for his books.

My 16 month-old son LOVES this book! I will not hear him playing with his toys in his playroom, go peek in on him, and there he will be, sitting transfixed in front of this book, flipping through the pages and mumbling, "vroom! vroom!" to himself. If your child loves trucks or tractors, get them this book! My husband takes our son for rides on our tractor & lawnmower all the time, and this is his (my son's, not my hubby's) all-time favorite book!

We've had this book (along with a couple other Bright Baby books "Aminals" and "First Words") for quite a few months and my 20 month daughter stills loves them all. She enjoys paging through the book to find what we've asked for. These books are a good size for small hands, making them easy to carry and turn the pages. The pictures are real, clear, and colorful on primary color backgrounds. Some of the larger vehicles take up two pages. The only other thing on the page is the name of the object (black letters in a kid-like font).

I get a kick out of asking her to find the "car transporter" or "airport fire engine". She squeals every time we're in the car when she sees an actual "car transporter".

A great simple book for my 1 year old son. He loves to look at the pictures while riding in his car seat. Keeps him entertained which is a huge plus.

Great truck book! Tractors, excavators, milk truck, fire truck, ambulance, loader, big rig, bulldozer, etc. All in all about 15 different kinds of trucks. The pictures are very appealing, bright backgrounds with the real pictures of the trucks filling the entire page. No clutter in the pictures, just the truck and the background and the wording on the type of truck it is. Great for kids who love trucks. My son takes it everywhere with him. Now I'm looking to buy more books from this series because of the beautiful pictures.

my DAUGHTER loves things that go - trucks, buses, cars...we both have learned lots from this book -- there are so many types of trucks and things that go that I did not the names to and many common things we see every day like the mail truck or fire truck.

My 18 month old is talking up a storm and LOVES trucks. He insists on reading this book over and over. The pictures are clear and he can now name EVERY truck in the book although he has some trouble with "car transporter". The word is a bit long for a kiddie book but he's certainly up for the challenge. I would recommend this book for any truck lover or word enthusiast. It is not a story book, just pictures and words. Some other vehicles include "mini loader", "digger", "ambulance", "fuel truck", "cement mixer", "fire engine".

Great pics!! The only con--if any, I think is that maybe the words could be a little more general. (i.e just "firetruck" or "tractor" instead of the formal full name.) But overall this book is awesome! Because of this book, one of my son's first words was "mail truck!" :) We love it!

By Andrew Schonbek on August 18, 2008
Format: Board book
Encarta Dictionary defines truck as "large commercial freight transport vehicle" or alternatively "a large vehicle for transporting goods by road".

On the back cover of this Bright Baby book the publisher pledges "This book will increase your child's vocabulary by associating words with beautiful pictures".

So what's the problem?

On the front cover we see a bright yellow mini loader - interesting, but definitely not a truck. The book also wrongly identifies tractors, diggers, scrapers, bulldozers, grass cutters, and excavators as trucks. All are fun to look at heavy equipment, but none are trucks.

Books purporting to be educationally valuable should be factually correct.

Therefore the most I can give it is three stars. It would be two except that my nephew's one year old Jacob just can't get enough of it, notwithstanding the inaccuracies.
