The Lovereading4Kids comment

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).


Big Blue Engine by Ken Wilson-Max

Big Blue Train Engine is ready to roll and you can help! Switch on the power, pull the lever and talk to control on the phone, Now you're ready to attach your engine to the rolling stock and set off across the countryside. Through the tunnel lies the dockyard where you can load freight before returning to the station.


Wilson-Max's bold shapes are well suited for the large industrial scale and dramatic perspectives. -- Publishers Weekly
