Synopsis

Tough Trucks by Tony Mitton

From rubbish trucks to concrete mixers, from tippers to tankers, this jolly picture book includes all different types of trucks. Machine-mad pre-schoolers can go along on a fantastic truck ride, learning about where the drivers eat and sleep while they are on the road. An audio CD attached to the inside back cover allows children to listen to the story and follow along with page turn cues. This popular picture book series makes learning about vehicles more fun than ever before. Each of the Amazing Machines books features lively rhyming text and bold, bright pictures of fun animal characters. A picture dictionary at the back of every book helps build vocabulary. Four Amazing Machines with CD were published in June 2007, and a further six titles will be published in October 2007.
