There are tons of book out there for young readers on the topic of cars, boats, trucks and construction equipment. My daughters really love reading these books aloud together and I wanted to recommend 4 of the transportation books we have recently read:
Little Tug by Stephen Savage
Four ships befriend one another and help each other as they go about their work in the harbor. Cute illustrations that remind me of the style in classic children’s books from the 1940s and 1950s.
To the Rescue! by Kate Riggs
Simple text with brightly colored illustrations. Great for children or babies who don’t like to sit still for a lengthy read-aloud. 😉
Best Ages: 0-3 years
I Am a Backhoe by Anna Grossnickle Hines
The perfect book for any children with imagination! A boy pretends to be various large trucks as he plays.
My Car by Byron Barton
Our children’s librarian frequently reads aloud books by author/illustrator Byron Barton. This is probably my favorite and my girls enjoy reading it aloud over and over. Wonderful descriptions of how people use a car.
Best Ages: pre-k – kindergarten
