**Books received for review, all thoughts are my own.


If you have a little boy in your life, you know that they tend to love things that go. Planes, trains and automobiles! I don't know what it is about these things that little boys are just drawn to...at least mine was! Now, my son was of course a big train lover, but before trains came firetrucks! Much like his father before him, he went crazy for them. For his first birthday, we celebrated with a firetruck themed birthday party and he received a ride on firetruck, a favorite toy until trains came along! When he moved up to his very own big boy room, it too had that firetruck theme. As I said, he-like so many boys at that age- loved his firetrucks. And if it's not firetrucks, it's construction vehicles. Kids love the bright colors of these trucks and the digging, the dumping... everything that goes with it. Like I said, little boys love things that go.

And that's not exclusive to boys either. Though she's not as crazy about them as my son was, even my daughter enjoys playing with play vehicles like firetrucks and construction crews.

So, when I was given the chance to review two fantastic new interactive books with these themes from Silver Dolphin Books, I jumped at the chance. Take a look:




Dig deep and start building as you learn about the mighty vehicles used at a construction site in I Love Construction Vehicles ($19.95; ISBN: 978-1-62686-562-4; Ages 5 and up). This complete activity kit allows kids to read, play, and explore the world of working vehicles, including diggers, dumpers, bulldozers, and enormous tunneling machines. Full-color photos throughout the book present these hardworking vehicles in full detail, and the included poster and reusable stickers complete the kit. Once kids have pored over the pages of the book, they can build their own construction site utilizing the shaped box and cardstock pieces, and put the model dump truck to work!

Includes:
*32-page fact book
*Model dump truck
*52 reusable stickers
*23 x 16-inch poster
*47 model pieces to build a construction site

Turn on the flashing lights and siren as you learn about the powerful vehicles that respond to emergencies in I Love Rescue Vehicles ($19.95; ISBN: 978-1-62686-561-7; Ages 5 and up). This complete activity kit allows kids to read, play, and explore the world of modern rescue vehicles, including fire trucks, ambulances, helicopters, and rescue boats. Full-color photos throughout the book present these mighty machines in full detail, and the included fire truck poster and reusable stickers complete the kit. Once kids have pored over the pages of the book, they can build their own fire station utilizing the shaped box and cardstock pieces, and then wheel out the model fire truck to save the day!

Includes:
*32-page fact book
*Model fire truck
*52 reusable stickers
*23 x 16-inch poster
*26 model pieces to build a fire station






Now, I have had the chance to review many fantastic books from Silver Dolphin Books and they have always been a hit in my home. Though they have varied greatly in topics and style, they've all had two things in common- they were all interactive, and they all made learning and reading FUN! These books are no different! In fact, these just might be the most interactive yet. Not only do your little ones get to read through the fact books and learn more about these fascinating vehicles, but they get to bring them to life too. Each kit includes a vehicle and model pieces that allow them (with the help of a grown up perhaps) build either a construction site or fire station. How fun is that!? And while that may be the coolest part, its not the end of the fun! Each kit also includes 52 reusable stickers and a fun poster too! (I don't know about your kids, but my kids LOVE posters!) This truly does bring reading to life in a way that makes kids WANT to open the books! And when it comes to kids, I think that's what reading should be all about. It shouldn't be a chore that they have to do...but something they love.

While my son thinks these are pretty fantastic even now at almost 9 years old, I know that as a preschooler he would have found them even more fascinating. Likewise, my daughter who is only mildly interested in trucks and such still find this to be a fun kit!!! If you have a child who loves firetrucks or construction vehicles, these books are going to be a must have!
