These three transport-themed books are firm favourites in our household. Vehicles and transport are always popular themes from Early Years to Journey planning in secondary school. Have a look at my transport-themed teaching resources. These have been chosen as they passed the test of holding the attention of our younger children. They are good quality and well-made books. although each transport book is quite different we can recommend them all.
Transport Book 1: Car, Car, Truck, Jeep
Car, car, truck, jeep is designed for the youngest readers and contains colourful images. It is written in the style of Baa Baa Black Sheep so the children can really get into the rhythm of the book. It is also the shortest and printed on thick card pages for younger hands.

First Hundred Machines
Lots of types of vehicles in this transport themed book. We enjoyed finding the corresponding toy car from the box (some of these are mine from 40 years ago so we have a few). There is a lift the flap page at the end which the boy enjoyed.
Prompt questions on each page allow discussions about the vehicles. But the book “First hundred machines” here.
Look, there’s a submarine!
A great little book. Lots of familiar elements from under the sea for children to explore.
