This large-format board book with lots of movable elements (flaps, sliders, etc.) invites children to move, load and unload a wide variety of vehicles found on farms, in cities, on construction sites and at a farmer’s market. They can drive a tractor into the barn, load a horse into a trailer, empty garbage cans into a garbage truck, take a damaged car off a tow truck, and much more. Short texts animate readers to get involved and name what they see, and children will have hours of fun exploring and playing with this spectacular book.
