I was never a car kid. From my earliest memories I was a "dinosaur kid" - the kid that can pronounce Archaeopteryx and Pachycephalosaurus at the age of 4. That annoying kid. Anyway, my son is not that kid. He is a airplane / car / tractor / truck kid, any type of machine that makes beeps and has flashing lights and he is all over it. So believe me when I say he is absolutely in love with this book. The first week we had it home he made us read it to him as a bedtime story twice every night. The drawings are incredible and very appealing to toddlers, and is a really sweet book that also teaches them about machinery and construction.
