KIRKUS REVIEW

With 26 photos of vehicles in all, this offering gives young transportation fans what they want.

All the favorite machines are here, from an airplane to a fire truck to a school bus, but there are some surprising choices, too, like a blimp, a double-decker bus and a pair of roller skates. Many photo-illustrated board books on this theme are overwhelmingly busy, but here each image is given its own page and centered on a clean, white background. The clarity of the pictures makes the accompanying one- or two-word labels almost superfluous. While the images, on close inspection, look to be a potpourri of retouched stock photography, computer-generated images and photos of models, the intended audience won’t care.

With so many cars, trucks, buses and more to pore over, this is a good bang for the board-book buck. (Board book. 18 months-3 years)
