My three year old was originally given another version of Mater's Tall Tales book with just three of the stories for his third birthday - long before he received DVD of with all nine stories for Christmas - but by that time I had read the three Mater stories to him so many times that I pretty much had the three stories Mater the Greater, Rescue Squad Mater and El Materdor memorized. Foolishly I bought him this book just to have something new to read ... now I have 6 more stories memorized.
He loves these stories. He's forsaken Thomas The Tank Engine, Curious George and all construction books for this series of stories. Every night for two months he insists on getting three of the nine stories read to him at bed time.

As for the book - there are indeed three stories repeated here that were in the shorter, three story book. For what it's worth they have been rewritten, I'm not sure I like the version here better than the original but my 3 year old does. The other stories are from the video. The images taken from the video and look really good. Type is big and the stories written short enough that you can get through them repetitively without too much dreariness - which is good because if your 3 year old is like mine, you'll be reading them a lot.

My son LOVES it. Nothing overtly sexual or otherwise inappropriate - sometimes happens with some kids books & film. If you are not "anti-wrestling" or "anti-CARS", then your kids might enjoy this book. Any CARS fans? You'll love it for sure, then.

I have a 4-year-old son and a 2-year-old son, and both are big fans of DisneyPixar Cars. Last year, my sons had gotten a Rescue Squad Mater play set and a UFM Mater play set, which he loved. I was curious about the stories behind them, having never seen the toons before, so I began searching on Amazon for books. I almost bought a couple of the books that have 3 stories each, when I saw a volume with all nine stories was available for pre-order. It was a much better deal, so I ordered it. When it arrived, I was impressed with its quality. The book is hardbound with a padded cover, and the pictures are large and vibrant. The stories are short and funny and my boys love them! So far, they like Moon Mater and "Flying Mater" (UFM: Unidentified Flying Mater) the best, but all nine stories are favorites.

My son (2 1/2 years old) has gotten really into the Mater's Tall Tales movie on Netflix, so I thought we'd give this a try. He loves Mater and laughs throughout this entire book. It is typically his first choice for bedtime stories and I would highly recommend it for any Cars/Mater fans out there.

My children are into Cars like you wouldn't believe. This book is perfect for bedtime stores. Lots of pictures to keep them entertaind. I also purchased the Tormentor monster truck and Frightening McMean monster truck to go along with the stories. They love to act out the story when done.

My mom picked this book up from Disneyland for my son. He's had it for at least 6 months, and we read one or two of these stories every single day. We have an enormous book collection, but seriously this is the ONLY book he wants to read. He is definitely a Cars fan, and Mater is his favorite. The photos are bright and vivid and the writing is actually fun to read. I will admit I get tired of the same stories every day and occasionally try to convince him to read another book. ANY other book. Ha ha, he just adores this one. I'm off to search for additional Mater's Tall Tales items for Christmas. If you have a Mater fan, this is definitely a good buy.

My son loves to look through this book, but it has a lot of words to read to a fidgety 3 year old. If you are reading to a young child, you'll probably need to paraphrase a lot. It is exactly like the collection on DVD.

My son LOVES this book. Just wish it was available in a board book. The thin pages make it so I can't leave this book in my kids room or they will tear it up which is a pity since it's their favorite book.
