This engaging picture reference book contains exactly 1000 things that go, ranging from Roman chariots to stretch limousines and lunar modules. Children will love poring over categories such as 'Emergency vehicles', 'At the building site' and 'On the farm', and spotting surprising vehicles such as the pogo stick and the sideways bicyle. * Pre-readers will enjoy looking and pointing at the beautiful pictures, while older children can use the book as a starting point for discussion or research. The book is an excellent tool for improving vocabulary as each picture is labelled, with an index at the back of the book. Part of the '1000 Things' series, which includes 1000 Things in Nature, 1000 Animals, '1000 Things under the sea' and '1000 Things to eat', the whole series is now being reprinted as attractive hardcover picture books.
