My 9-month old grand-son loves this book. His 5-year-old sister loves it too and enjoys reading it to him.

The Turkeybird Speaks (My son's opinion, age 3): "Now this is the part where I tell you to pull up a chair and your favorite snack so you can settle into a great book. Does it really get any better than trucks, planes, and trains? I would say not! They move, they have wheels, they go fast and they do all sorts of fun things. I especially liked reading my plane book when we traveled cross country to our new home. It was neat to look out the window and see the same sky that I was looking at in my book. These books are a must have for every home. Go get them!" Mom's Two Cents: "I have to agree with The Turkeybird and the publishers summary. We initially purchased the Trucks book when he was very little and it instantly became a favorite. Now that he is quite a bit older (at least two years have passed) he still picks them out of our full bookshelf. As he mentioned, we traveled by plane this last summer to move from the DC area to California and the Planes book was a huge hit! There are images of people getting on and off planes in the book and because of the small airport we initially left from, we were able to get aboard the plane just as they did in the book, which he loved! And though you would think these books wouldn't appeal to girls, even The Littlebug picked the Plane book out yesterday as her book of choice. "Now, onto the technical side of the book. What I, as a parent, really like about these books are the simple text and straight forward images. It's not going to be the most beautiful book on your shelf, nor will the words be drawn out and elaborate, but it still holds an entertainment and educational value I can't deny. Each page has between 3 to 5 words with a simple illustration demonstrating the text. For smaller kids it can often times be overwhelming to have a book filled with words and dramatic images, but these books though not elegant are still captivating. I highly recommend these books for beginning readers and even for older children who may need a respite between larger, more complicated books."

This was a gift for my 1st son on his 1st b-day, now he's 4 and my second son is 2 years old and LOVES it as well!! We've read it OVER and OVER to both boys, they have both loved hearing it, pointing at the pictures, etc... They also love "Trains" by the same author.

I honestly cannot tell you what the appeal of this book is, but my 21-month old son LOVES it. In fact, he loves all of Byron Barton's books. I am online right now because I'm buying the 'Boats' and 'Planes' to add to our growing collection. The pictures are simplistic, the writing is unspectacular. And yet . . . we will probably end up owning all of this guy's books pretty soon.

I bought the board edition of this book about a month ago and my daughter loves it! It is just a very straight forward book about all the trucks kids see as they are driving around. The illustrations are very simple but cute. I would recommend this for both boys and girls!
