The Lovereading4Kids comment

This large format board book with its clever round tabs is a great first book to share with pre-school age children. Ten spreads take us to various locations – city, farm, airport and more. In each picture there are bright objects to spot and name and particularly cheery animal characters going about their daily business, waiting at the bus stop, driving a combine harvester, checking in at the airport. Everything is clearly labelled and while there’s no narrative there’s lots of action and the opportunity to talk about what’s going on. Questions challenge the reader to find and count specific items. Vehicles and machines have a starring role in the illustrations too and this will particularly appeal to youngsters with a passion for modes of transport. ~ Andrea Reece

There's a companion title, Amazing Machines First Numbers too!

Synopsis

Amazing Machines First Words by Tony Mitton

Here's a rocket out in space. What can you see? Stars, the Moon - it's a very big place!

For fans of the bestselling Amazing Machines series, this is a perfect way for young children to learn first words with their favourite vehicles! Robust, easy-to-hold tabs along the top and side guide young hands to each page. Ten colourful scenes help with vocabulary, and questions on each page encourage children to investigate further.

About the Author

Tony Mitton

Tony Mitton has been writing since he was 9. He began writing specifically for children while working as a primary school and special needs teacher. He now works full-time as a writer and sometimes performs his poems in schools and libraries and other venues, mainly in the UK. His picture books include Down by the Cool of the Pool (with Guy Parker-Rees) and The Somethingosaur (with Russell Ayto).

He lives in a small house in the middle of Cambridge with his wife and two children, and a cat called Tiggy, who is definitely one of the family. Tony likes Cambridge but he and his wife often wish they'd settled somewhere where there are better places for walking, like cliffs and hills with good views of the landscape.
