I purchased this book for my curriculum at school for my 4 year olds. But my grandson loves it so much that it hasn't made it to school yet. It is one of his daily favorites that we have to read multiple times. I love the informational components (he now knows what tracks, pistons, jacks, etc. are and what they do). I also love the rhyming component. It is a wonderful story especially if your child loves machines.

Clear, simple pictures accompanied by short, descriptive rhymes puts this book in the top ten for my 2 year old. It helps give a child a feel for language, particularly for synonyms and rhythms. There is sufficient detail for curious questions and bold statements ('a RED digger'). The book playfully teaches the child to match implements to actions.

My son knows this book off by heart. He is nearly two, and he makes me read it over and over. He says the last word of every rhyming page, and is reduced to hysterics by the squelching and glugging comments. He has also learnt all the technical terms for different parts of diggers and he is constantly pointing them out on our journeys.Thank you Tony Mitton and Ant Parker for the hours of fun we have with your brilliant book. I have just ordered Roaring Rockets, and I cannot wait for it to arrive.

My twin toddlers love this book. The author has tapped into all their obsessions - diggers, trains, airplanes, fire engines and rockets - in his series. They love the rhymes and the simple text makes it easy for them to join in while you are reading. A real hit with the two year old boy set!

our 2 1/2 year old son is realy enjoying the whole "amazing machines" series. i like them too. they are fun, and the rhymes are clever. they even give me more to talk about with my son when we see different trucks that go by. i can "discuss" the truck parts, and the jobs that the trucks do. in my opinion, a very fun series that has helped me spend quality time with my little truck lover.

I bought this book for my two year old son. He loves it, but I notice his little 4 month old sister loves it also because of the colorful pitures. The pictures of animals working is very cute. There are extra things in the pitures, like workers carrying lunch boxes that I can discuss with my son. Also the pages are more durable than normal paper. He wanted to take a tractor book to bed for a nap and I felt comfortable letting him read (flip through) this one alone before he fell asleep. However, my wife didn't like the idea of any book in his crib!
