WHEELS AT WORK: CITY is a simple but fun lift-the-flap book about vehicles little ones will see around the city. Each page features a vehicle that lifts to tell you what it carries. For instance, the delivery truck is delivering groceries, while the school bus is picking up the children. The other three vehicles shown are a city park pick-up truck, a train, and a recycling truck. These are likely vehicles that children will see around town and can recognize.

What I loved: This board book has a really simple concept but works really well. Each page only has a few words, which is great for infants and young toddlers, who will enjoy mostly checking things out and lifting the flaps. The flaps themselves are the size of the page and very sturdy, so they are made to withstand much reading and play. The illustrations are simple and cartoonish but do resemble the designated vehicles. With simple backgrounds in bright colors, this works very well for the youngest of readers.

The board book is very sturdy, and I appreciate the thick and oversize flaps that withstand rough little readers. The font is also clear and large, making it easy to read even when little ones are holding it. The simple phrases are perfect for infants and young toddlers who can start to learn these basic vehicles and turn pages fast.

Final verdict: A fun and simple lift-the-flap board book, WHEELS AT WORK: CITY is a great choice for infants and young toddlers who love vehicles and bright colors.
