My son (17.5 months) loves this book so much he's completely worn it out. We've taped it with clear packing tape several times, but by now even the tape that's taping the tape needs to be retaped, so it's time for a new copy. This is his stroller book--he *must* read this book while riding in the stroller, pointing at all the pictures and exclaiming "truck!" over and over again. Or turning to the fire truck and making a siren noise, or saying "pickle!" at the pickle car.
*I* love this book because it's just silly. It puts real-life vehicles (like fire engines) and puts them on the page next to vehicles that don't exist (like a peanut car).
This is such a must-have book, especially for toddlers obsessed with vehicles. If your child is one of them, then definitely get this book (and Byron Barton's _Trucks_, too).

I love Richard Scarry's books. Great illustrations. I bought this book based on the reviews. I was disappointed in the size of the book, not the length, but the size of it. My sons struggle to see all of the cars because the pictures are so tiny. The lemon car is the size of a pea! The entire book fits in my palm. Great for diaper bags, but not for everyday use in our house.

It won't keep me from getting other books by Richard Scarry.

My 20 month old son has been mezmorized by this book for months now. Typically a book will hold his interest for 5 or 10 minutes at a time. My son can never seem to put this book down. It is ideal for long car trips, traffic jams or fussy days. There is a lot going on in the book so he never seems to get bored.

It is the perfect size for her small hands and she loves the colorful pictures. Granted, some of the cars are a little strange in order to get through all of the letters in the alphabet (how about a corn car or a zippermobile?). The best things about this book are the size and the fact that it is a relatively indestructable board book. It also brings back my own childhood memories of Richard Scary books.

This reminded me a lot of a tongue twister. The book is about 150 words, and it's a really fun book to read. A lot of the cars are made up, like zippermobile and bugdozer and queen car.

There are either one or two cars for each letter, so there are probably about 40-45 different cars in the book, and each letter has a car, even the hard ones like J, Q, X, and Z.

The book is also extremely tiny. This will probably be the smallest book on your bookshelf.

Pros:
+High quality board book
+Nice shape to the book
+Fun story, fun book to read
+Once you memorize the story, you can read it very fast

Cons:
-Very, very small
-Has a lot of made up words

I bought this book with the idea of saving it on the shelf until my little one was able to learn his abc's. Before I put in on the shelf I showed it to him and he was fascinated! He loved the pictures. The book is rather small in shape so I was therefore thrilled to see how easy it was for him to hold it all by himself. I now know that this will be a favorite of his for quite some time!

This book is so much fun! Not only are there the standard cars like "mail truck" and "newspaper truck," there are also imaginative ones like "pickle car, pencil car and don't forget the pumpkin car!" I don't know if it's exactly a poem, but there is a lovely rhythm to the words that just makes it a joy to read. The shape of the book is fun, too--and it's nice and light, small enough for younger babies to hold. Even better than other small board books. I didn't know what to expect when I bought it, and have enjoyed it more than anticipated.

This is such a simple book, but it has provided countless hours of entertainment for both my 2 year old son and 4 year old daughter. My 4 year old loves the illustrations and how they match up with the letters of the alphabet. She goes through the book and laughs at all the funny things taking place! My 2 year old son carries this book around everywhere. Whenever we go in the car, he asks to bring his Lowly Worm book. It's a simple, small book with great illustrations. I've bought it as presents for friends with little boys, as you can't beat a book that has pickle, apple and banana cars!
