One of the big favorites of my kids has always been transportation vehicles. They love ‘things that go’! Some of Shiloh’s first words have been plane, train, and truck. She loves spotting them in real life and is drawn to looking at books with pictures of vehicles in them. As we try to foster a love for reading in all of our kids, this list of transportation books is a great resource to help find books that will join the love of vehicles with the fun of reading.
