I remembered the detail of the Usborne books from my children's childhood. This book was a gift for a seven year old grandson who loves construction vehicles. The illustrations/cutaways are informative. Diggers and Cranes arrived shrink wrapped and in good condition. The book is new, as promised, but it doesn't have the "smell" of a new book. Grandson enjoys it, nonetheless!
This book is great for 2 year olds to 20 year olds! The pictures are fantastic and keep my little one's interest. Honestly, this book has never seen the shelf. My son looks at it daily. Inside you have the large picture of the Digger or Crane, the correct name, and what people call it. You get information on how it works, and where it originated and when you use it on a construction site. The back offers an index. I feel we will have this book forever!
