Organized into 11 categories that include “On the road,” “To therescue,” and “Wheelie wonders,” brief sentences introduce each type of vehicle (“Trucks canpush and pull and do lots of different jobs”).With the book’s focus on building vocabulary,even seasoned fans of planes, trains, and automobiles will find new words (e.g., catamaran,maglev, and Segway). Bright cartoon illustrations feature cheerful animals on the move,such as a giraffe wearing a polka-dotted scarfwhile peddling a tricycle. As an interactive bonus, questions are posed throughout (“Whatcolors can you see on the hot-air balloon?”),and back matter includes a pictograph chart ofnumerals 1 to 20 with corresponding vehiclesto count.
