This bitty book, about the size of an actual apple, goes through the alphabet with food-themed vehicles driving it along. It's a great way to introduce lots of new vocabulary words - not just those relating to cars and trucks. It's also a great size for my eight month old to play with, as it's big enough for her to open and shut the pages and manipulate the entire book with her hands but small enough that she doesn't hurt herself as she inevitably throws it or slams it - or puts it in her mouth.

a simple fun kids' book that is great for keeping small children entertained, whether reading aloud to them the different (silly) kinds of cars, or just for them flipping through themselves. The small sturdy pages are ideal for little hands (and survive little mouths), and the pictures are bright and involving. plus, it's a book I don't mind reading aloud over and over.

William got this for Christmas from my mother. While the size is great for him as an infant, the pictures are too small and the content above him. We have looked at it a few times together those for just the experience of looking at books together.

I like the various types of cars using the alphabet. Some are informative while others are silly. The mix of the two is well balanced.

First book purchased for little Theodore. Never too early. A small little book just about the size of a large apple. Filled with such silliness as P is for Pickle Car and Pencil Car. X is for xylophone car! Emerson "read" it to his baby last night.

Scarry, Richard
a cute book for young children, for use in preschool and kindergarten to help review the alphabet, and for later years with second language learners.

It helps to LOVE cars and trucks, but this book is the perfect size for little hands to carry around and look through. Has some of the classic Richard Scarry vehicles - bananamobile, apple car, zippercar. Jackson loves the street sweeper, mail truck and garbage truck. All boy!

Simone has every word of this little book memorized but instead of "reading," she sings it. She sits in her bed and sings it to all her dollys and animals. cute.
Richard Scarry and Lowly Worm....more good childhood memories and loves.

What more could a truck/car and Richard Scarry fan want than this? Definitely for the 3-4 age range, but with all the silly cars, will get a giggle from older kids too.

This board book is hilarious in that it pairs basic cars, such as a tractor or fire engine, with Richard Scarry cars, such as a bananamobile, crayon car, and a bugdozer. So funny.

Great book for on-the-go entertainment for my 2-year-old son. And doubles as a car for him to drive around on the floor.

This is a fun ABC book because of all the different cars and trucks that are introduced. This is a good book for individual reading.

My son really enjoys this! I've never been really partial to Scarry's illustrations, but when I rate a kids book its as much about what my kids think about it as the value I attach to it!

This little book is well-worn. My son loves it, and he knows all the names of the cars and trucks and who's driving them.

I love this cute little book. I like that there are more than one car for some of the letters. I also like that some of them are real and some of them are made up vehicles.
