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.

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.

Great pictures and plenty of variety...maybe too much? Maybe just too much for what I was looking for. So many different kinds of vehicles and names that it kind of numbs you to them. All the different "trucks" just become "truck" instead of remembering some classics like "fire truck", "dump truck".

Nevertheless, it is well put together and the images are high quality. Maybe better suited for the preschooler to 1st grade when considering the variety and differentiation of different vehicle classes.

Mr. Priddy, how could you? This book should be classified as a controlled substance. Our twin toddlers are so addicted to First 100 Machines that they continue to "request" it after a year of repeated readings, often 3 or 4 times in a row. Another gripe is with the quality of construction of the book. It has disintegrated and now is just a pile of tattered, chewed, well loved pages. We have been forced to re-bind the book (twice) with packing tape. Is there not a warranty you can give the parents of your wide-eyed minions? We give the book 5 stars.

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!!

Great pictures, very colorful and keeps my sons attention, however I find it a little confusing for a FIRST book. My son points at every picture and claims car. However captions are sports car, family car, classic car, hot rod, race car etc.... It's fine when he's alone and just wants to look at the pictures but frustrating for him to be "corrected" on each picture

My 22 month old girl loooovvess this book. She recognizes alomost all vehicles in the book by name.

Other reviewers have noted that , this book is called first 100 machines but it show cases only vehicles. That is true. There are 3 different types of excavators (a giant, a mini and a normal excavator) that confused my kid. Although I am not very impressed, I am still giving 5 stars because it keeps her occupied and is a great learning experience.

We own 4 books from this series. At first I didn't like them because they were just pictures and no story or text to read out and i really had to think hard what to say about each picture. But i was wrong. The pictures were enough to capture my little ones attention and she will sit for several minutes pointing out and 'reading' from these books. She has had it for 2 months now and its still her favourite. Its funny to hear her say "ambulance waan waan waan' or 'skid steer'. Worth the buy!

I love that this is a big hard back book with board book pages and only cost me $8. My two year old son can sit and look through this for hours. We sometimes like to identify colors by finding cars etc that are the color we are looking for. Great for toddlers!

Great book! It has large colorful pictures of every boys favorite things cars, trucks, planes, boats, and machines! This is one of my son's favorite books and we enjoy reading it together and then identifying these machines when we are out in public. It is funny when we are driving down the road and he yells out look at the crane or front loader! This makes reading time fun and interesting for him and helps to mix it from me just reading a story to him and him interacting me as we read together.
