Children find automobiles fascinating: Who drives on the street? Where does a truck driver sleep? Who helps when there's an accident? Where are cars repaired? Who works at construction sights?
Lots of vehicles of various sizes are included in this little "vehicle almanac", along with a description of each vehicle's function: bobby car, motorcycle, car, police car, ambulance, garbage truck, big trucks used for moving freight, and many more. The appealing and accurate illustrations, interactive elements and texts make this book a true favorite for young vehicle fans.
