A Lovereading4kids 'Great read you may have missed 2011' selection.

Masses of wonderfully fun interactive elements enabling toddlers to learn about all kinds of transport and full of bright, bold illustrations and packed with tabs to pull, flaps to lift and pop-ups to pop. An utter delight for children (and parents).
