    Excellent!

    My 3 year-old loves the axel books! The voice reading them is enthusiastic and exciting and really gets his attention. I wish there were more. After the first time we read one, my son got on his bike and started saying "zip, zip, zoom." Highly recommend.

    Great read-to-me book!

    Exciting and fun read! Especially good for little guys, the sound effects and illustrations are spectacular and the words are simple enough for beginning readers. Perfect for ages 2-6.

    Great book!

    My grandson loves the Axel books. They are just a little too expensive and the two books could have had more variety in the stories.

    Recommended for young, emerging readers.

    My Grandsons really enjoyed Axel the Truck. It's about the adventures of a monster truck. They both read and recorded it with that feature of my Nook. I find that it encourages them to read more when they can hear themselves reading.

    Wonderful!

    My almost 2 year old is obsessed with vehicles! I was delighted to find this book for our Nook so we could read it together. After using the Read to Me feature once, I won't be reading it to him anymore! The voice that reads this book is PERFECT! He changes his voice when Axel talks and does the sound effects better than this mom could! We LOVE it! I'll be looking for more Axel books to be added to the Nook store!

    Great beginner read!

    My 1st grader was able to read this without much help. Of course the monster truck held his interests.
