The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is the perfect book for kids who go bonkers over big machines - well in that case it's virtually all boys, and their dads of course! It features some of the world's biggest machines found on building sites, farms, airports and dockyards including one of the biggest machines ever, the bucket-wheel excavator used in mining. For the biggest of machines, it includes two giant foldout pages.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
