Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Children's Literature

The set should be just the ticket for the nursery school market.

Children's Literature
The "Amazing Machines" collection for tots covers vehicles that roar and grunt, fly and sail, or merely shove and carry. Done up in tidy verse, with characters that borrow quite a bit from Richard Scarry, the page-turners are colorfully illustrated and sport reinforced binding with a fair amount of wear in it. Rabbit, Bird, and Mouse display their stuff driving heavy eighteen-wheeler rigs—not to mention garbage trucks, dump trucks, tankers (carrying milk, of course), and tow trucks for when the others break down. Along the way youngsters get to peek into cabs and truck stops, as well as learn the usefulness of CB radios. A one-page picture dictionary completes the package. The set should be just the ticket for the nursery school market. 2003, Kingfisher, Ages 3 to 5.

    My son adores these books!

    We have almost all of the Amazing Machines books. My son (age 2 1/2) loves every one we have. The pictures are great and the rhymes are fun.
