My Big Truck Book – a review

I think I might have mentioned before that Monkey is slightly obsessed with all sorts of vehicles.  We often borrow factual books from the Library on all things vehicle related so when we received My Big Truck Book from the lovely people at Ticktock Books, the Children’s Book arm of Octopus Publishing.

This hardback book, published in July this year, is primarily aimed at children aged 5-7 years, but this is exactly the type of book we regularly borrow from our Library.  Monkey, aged nearly 4 years, loves this book already.  There are 24 pages of colourful photographs of numerous vehicles – not just trucks.  The paper is really quite thick, so hopefully there is no chance of Monkey tearing any pages.

The book is full of useful facts about the various machines – tractors, backhoe loaders, fire engines, refuse trucks and the like.  Monkey may not be able to read this book himself yet, but he absorbs the kind of information held within this kind of book like a sponge.  He understands, stores the facts and then tells me and Daddy P all about it at a later date.

Any vehicle mad young child is going to want to add this book to their bookshelf, it’s a big hit here.

My Big Trucks Book is retailing at ££6.99 and is available through all good retailers including Amazon.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

A Mum with a 9 year old son, enjoying life and having fun as my son travels through school life. We love to get outdoors whenever possible and make the most of the world around us. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. We have this too and it’s great. My kids always seem to love these kind of books even from about 2 years,because of the pictures. With all of mine once they hit 2, they go into a vehicles obsession lol (sure many boys do!) so anything like this really suits them 😀

  2. We’ve got this one too. Z took it off to his room before I had the chance to look at it though lol. Great review 🙂

  3. My son loves these kind of books too – big pictures with snippets of information, although he’s not that fussed about hearing all the bits.

I'd love to hear from you and try to reply to all comments
