“Slegers provides a great interactive experience for parents and children, perfectly suited to one-on-one and small group dialogic reading. Fans of her previous work will love this title.” – School Library Journal
Trucks and cars are very important in Kevin’s world. He likes them all: the strong workers, like the tractor and the garbage truck; the quick helpers, like the fire engine and the police car; and the regular road vehicles, like the car and the motorcycle. Vroom! There are lots of wheels in this big book of cars. There are also rhymes and questions to make the book really attractive to toddlers.
Many young children are fascinated by vehicles, and Kevin is one of them. A lively and informative book for car lovers ages 30 months and up.

Kevin invites you to come ride with him and he'll take you on a journey through the book. He is excited to have you aboard and as you zoom through the pages you will discover many different vehicles that Kevin loves.
You encounter strong work vehicles such as tractors, that are essential to the farmer and crucial for his work on the farm. You meet up with huge garbage trucks that pick up your garbage and in so doing keep your world sanitary and clean. He introduces you to quick helper vehicles portrayed by fire engines, ambulances and police cars. These first responders keep towns and cities safe and protected for you its citizen. Kevin also highlights regular road vehicles, the mundane everyday ones, that are so necessary to the average person: cars, limos, motorcycles and even bicycles, millions of vehicles that keep our world humming and constantly on the move.
The book also is interactive. The young reader is encouraged to play matching games, ask a myriad of questions and listen to the rhymes included. There are tons of wheels on display that go round and round. Kevin and his friend Katie want you to have fun learning about which vehicle these wheels belong to as you join them and go for a ride. This is a fun book that is both educational and a joy to share together.
Which vehicle is your favourite in Kevin's collection? Maybe you can draw a picture of it after you have read the book and share it with your family. Highly recommended.
