Best Board Books About Vehicles For Your Car Crazy Kids

The best board books about trains, trucks, cars and more

If your little one is obsessed with wheels you need to check out these books! Reading together has been proven to boost vocabulary and brain development. It’s a seriously sweet way to wrap up your evening before bed, or just slow down and reconnect in the middle of the day. Board books are so much more durable than paperback books. They help encourage kids to hold the book themselves and help you turn the pages without the fear of them ruining the book. If your kiddo is into vehicles, reading books about them is a great way to keep them interested in reading. Let’s jump right in to some of my favorites:
