From classics to some lesser known interesting ones, if you’re on the hunt for kids books about cars and trucks, you’ve got plenty to choose from. But that’s what sort of makes it even more difficult right?
Well, not anymore! Read on, because I’ve shortlisted some of the best ones right here, to make it all easier for you.
Discovering the Best Kids Books About Cars & Trucks
If your little one is in that phase where he’s utterly fascinated by things that go vroom, its awesome, because there’s so much to do to keep him interested and engaged. I’ve listed some of the best books here, but if that’s not all, I’ve also included a short list of my favorite related crafts and activities as well. Just to help you make the best of it all.
Just as you’d expect, The Truck book takes your little one on a journey to discovering everything about 50 different trucks. It packs in colorful and detailed illustrations to keep your toddler interested.
This one’s a good choice for toddlers- infact so much so that you can make this one among his first few books.
This brightly colored board book is great to stimulate the minds of young readers, and introduce them to 100 different truck photographs to look at.
Got a little vehicle fan? He’ll definitely love this book which packs in so much fun related to cars, trucks, planes and almost every different automobile out there.
This one’s the third installment of Patricia Hubbell’s popular series, and if your little one is fascinated by cars, it can be a great pick.
Now available as a board book specifically for toddlers who love trucks, this book has some of the most bold and beautiful illustrations.
With wacky animals as truckers and super cute and fun filled illustrations, this book is another must buy.

This one’s book #3 in the little vehicles series, and follows the story of Jill and her fearless firetruck as they go around town, putting out smoky fires.
