Best Vehicle Books for Toddlers

Little ones love things that zoom and honk—from cars and trucks to planes and trains and big construction machines—and they love reading about them too. If you have a vehicle enthusiast on your hands, we’ve gathered our favorite books about all things on four wheels (or more).

This classic picture book features just about every mode of transportation imaginable! Fun, short anecdotes accompany clearly labeled station wagons, fire trucks, bicycles and more, all driven by the friendly critters that Richard Scarry is known for.

Richard Scarry's Cars and Trucks and Things That Go


For the youngest car lovers, this vehicle-focused Indestructible is a great start to your collection. These little books are made to handle up to anything babies can throw at them; they can be chewed on, folded and wrinkled, and they won’t tear or break. They’re even washable (no kidding).

Indestructibles: Things that Go


Get ready to perfect your “beep beep” and loud “HONK” with this friendly little truck and the big dump truck. It’s a new classic that teaches the benefits of being kind, and while this book may not have been around when you were a kid, you’ll wish it had been.

Little Blue Truck Board Book


Exciting lift-the-flaps reveal adorable animals driving boats, school buses and trains as you search for a baby on the go.

Zoom, Zoom, Baby!


At 90 years old, this adorable story about a helpful little train engine remains a staple of any nursery library, and it teaches children that even the smallest ones can do anything if they just believe in themselves.

The Little Engine That Could


The train to Dreamland is leaving the station, ready to chug on past hills and plains, a bright moon and tired sheep. The lullaby-like rhyme of this book is sure to get any train-loving little one ready for sleep in no time, and the gentle rhythm feels just like a sleepy train: hush-a hush-a hush-a hush-a sleeeeeeeep.

The Goodnight Train


Every heavy-duty machine has its own bouncing poem and illustration to show it hard at work, and with a unique personality in each one, there’s a truck in this book for every kid.

Digger, Dozer, Dumper


Even construction vehicles have to go to sleep, so little ones can join the crane, cement mixer and excavator as they wrap up their busy day and settle into a quiet evening.

Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site


If your toddler loves trucks, this comprehensive picture book is the next best thing to a truck encyclopedia. Fire trucks, snow plows, school buses, combine harvesters…just about every truck a child could imagine is named and photographed, making this book the perfect tool to learn all about your favorite vehicles.
