First 100 Trucks and Things That Go is a large board book for young children, full of 100 photographs of all kinds of vehicles. Each colorful photograph is accompanied by the word, and the book is separated into themesrescue vehicles, construction vehicles, on the farm, on the road, on the water, cars, and flying machines. This is a great way to build vocabulary for little ones fascinated by trucks, cars, diggers, tractors, and other things that go.

We started with First 100 Words when our Grandson was just 1. He still loves the colorful pictures and has learned his animal sounds and colors. Now First 100 Machines is his favorite, again the colorful pictures seem to keep him occupied and engaged. He seems to be facinated by the machines and recognizes them when we are on the road. It has become a fun game in the car and his word skills are improving every day. Such a great and facinating age. I highly reccommend these books for hours of engaging and entertaining fun.
