“Camille Babeau sneaks a bit of useful physics into the machine-packed pages of ‘Vehicles Transportation,’ the latest in the ‘Do You Know?’ series. The book has a Richard Scarry vibe, with its golden spine and colorful pictures organized by theme. . . Here children ages 5-8 will find a wealth of detail about familiar modes of transport (trains, trucks, construction vehicles) and those more exotic. . . . [A] stylish survey of things that go.”—The Wall Street Journal
