My two year old grandson loved this book.
I. S. Paliulis
He does enjoy it now, but just a few pages is enough for one sitting.

This was my son's favorite book as a little boy.

The illustrations are superb and the variety of vehicles are fun. From the beginning of truck design to the hugest of huge, Harry McNaught shows us not only what these metallic beasts look like but how they effect and change our world for the betterment of all. Five Rummm, Rummms from my son and I.

Format: Paperback
The book is filled with classic color illustrations of twentieth century American trucks and cars. It's great for presenting the very many kinds of vehicles in a quieter way than a DVD. Many of these trucks are not seen much anymore, but they are still very interesting to young children who like books that don't need to be read. There is no story here, it's more like a catalog of all the various types of trucks -- modern and historical -- that have been used in America.
The color illustrations have a lot of detail that is both fun and interesting to examine. The firehouse scene has lots of firemen doing various things. Many scenes feature dogs and pedestrians doing interesting things along with all the trucks. What a bargain. Pick this one and enjoy.

This is the book that got my son fascinated with trucks! His day care center has this book and his teachers told me one day that they LOVE my son; because while all the other kids are running around screaming, my son is sitting in the middle of the floor "reading" this book. Needless to say, I had to go out and get it myself, hoping it'd allow me some time to get things done around the house! My son really does love this book. He reads it every day when we get home from day care, and at 18 months old, he still hasn't torn any of the pages because he is SO careful with it. He doesn't want any damage to come to this favorite book of his!

This was my son's favorite book as a little boy. He went through 3 copies of it because it was re-read so many times it would eventually fall apart. My son now has 19 month old twins and his son is crazy about trucks. I was thrilled that the book is still in print so my grandson can hopefully get as much enjoyment out of it as his daddy did.

My two-year-old son liked this book so much he memorized the entire text, and for a while we took trips to construction sites, where he knew the names of all the equipment (how about "vibratory sheeps' foot?") and the jobs the various machines and trucks were built for. Realistic pictures and dynamic narration.

My 2-year-old found this book in his grandma's book box and immediately fell in love with it. We read it at least 100 times during the seven days we stayed at grandma's. He loved it so much, I had to buy another for our house and a new copy for grandma!

My 21/2 yr old son and I have read this over and over. It has helped me name alot of the trucks we see everyday while driving in the car. Now I can answer his "whasthat?" Plus he loves to point out the trucks by the pictures in the book. Just love the Hot Dog Truck. Recommend for the truck lover in your life.
