10 Transportation Books for Children Who Love Things that Go!

Young children are often fascinated by cars, boats, planes, trains, trucks and anything else that moves! Vehicles are an exciting part of children’s daily lives, and you can use their interest in transportation to extend their learning in others ways – including reading.

There are many wonderful children’s books that can inspire your child to think even more about transportation and that can stimulate discussions about how we move from here to there. Consider reading the popular children’s books listed below and then taking your child on a follow-up adventure – maybe to observe the excitement at a bike repair shop or to ride on a local trolley. Your child will love exploring this great topic with you!

Ages 0-2 years
