A perfect book for little digger-lovers!

Trucks and tractors, fire engines and helicopters—they all like to work hard. But after a long, happy day of beep-beeping and vroom-vrooming, even the busiest engines need to rest. This bright, bouncy, noise-filled book brings together all the vehicles that children adore.

      This is a good book. Great subject matter for young children. This is an informative book and great for teaching children about different machines. The only draw back is the use of American english and terminology.

        My 18mo boy loves this book, especially now that he's recognising the garbage trucks, cranes, diggers etc when we go outside. The rhymes and action words capture his attention and really adds to his vocabulary.

          This is the most read book I have in my Day Care. It is read at least 3-4 times every day and the children love to read it themselves. I have had it in my library since about 2000 so it is well loved.

              Fantastic book for toddlers (especially those interested in diggers, large machines etc!). Very catchy rhythmic words and colourful pictures. My 2yo son requests this every day.

                I bought this book for my little boy coz he loves all the wheels, and it turns out to be his most favorite book! We read together and I imitate the noise/action each machine does which keeps my active one greatly entertained. I can't count how many times in a day we read this book together. So glad I bought it!

                  This book lives at the bottom of our pram, every day it gets a read. We use it to compare real machines and talk about them.
