From aeroplanes to fire engines, the internationally bestselling Amazing Machines series is the perfect way for preschoolers to learn about all sorts of different machines and things that go! Every book introduces a new vehicle and features a zippy rhyming text, bright, colourful artwork, and the same friendly animal characters each time. There's even a helpful picture glossary at the end to help recap any new words and technical terms. Terrific Trains follows the animal crew as they get to grips with railways. Climb on board and whizz down the track to discover different kinds of trains, the things they do and how rail travel works. Every page is full of the detail that machine-mad toddlers love: diesel, steam and electric engines, points on the track, the signals and so much more! Other titles in the Amazing Machines series include: Tremendous Tractors, Flashing Fire Engines and Amazing Aeroplanes.
The ideal picture books for fans of Top Gear - little or big!
