Just what a 3 year old wants to read and explore!Colorfull pictures, nicely written text - and real easy for little kids to follow and absorb, lots of information about various emergency vehicles/machines/crafts, etc. Liked additional feature of speed and crew count at the top of each page (my son was counting little figurines and was very excited about it). We only had this book for a few days, but my son asked to read it a few times every day. Also, nice heavy stock of paper, which is not so easy to tear.I do recommend this book for all the kids who are into firetrucks, police cars, etc. Very educational even for an adult! :)
My 2 year old is obsessed with this book. Sometimes I have to read it twice per day. We had previously purchased the "Birds" book from this series and loved it, and I knew my kid would love this one even more. Though "Bodies" is a bit advanced for him right now (or maybe he's just not interested), I think this series is great for non-fiction photographic books for little kids. They're basically like toddler versions of DK Eyewitness books. The pages are thicker than regular paper, so they are also good for transitioning from paper to board books.My only complaint about this book is the page about police helicopters, "Sky police" -- it is all about chasing and catching criminals. Police helicopters do a lot of different types of things, not just searching for criminals "on the loose," and I just feel really uncomfortable reading that page to my child. (The last time I saw a police helicopter, it was flying above me while I was in a peaceful protest march.) I'd rather the page said, "police helicopters are there to keep people safe," or something like that.This page probably won't bother most people, so I would recommend this book to anyone whose kid loves vehicles.
My six year old son discovered this book at local library and fall in love with it. Illustrations with fact all about fire trucks, easy to read level that draw him to the book. He wants to own one so he doesn't have to return the book. . Now he has one more book to add on his library.
My son loved it. It has every kind of emergency vehicles discussed with good vocabulary.
