Book titles and descriptions:
《轱辘轱辘转》Cars and Trucks and Things that Go
Review from Amazon.com of the English edition:
"Although this book was around when many of today's parents were youngsters, it has remained a steadfast must-have in every toddler's library. For starters, it's a great vocabulary guide that names the many things that go (and some that haven't a prayer of going, but are great fun to imagine anyway). It's also teeming with detail-rich scenes and characters on every page, teaching children the rewards of looking long and closely (such as finding the hidden "Goldbug" in each spread). Along the way it entertains with the silly and slapstick--everything from toothpaste and toothbrush cars to six fire department vehicles that show up to extinguish a ladybug-size fire in a miniature pink convertible. What's most amazing about this book, however, is its longevity. When you purchase it for your fledgling talker, you should consider it an investment. Even 11-, 12-, and 13-year-olds are known to pore over the book nostalgically, cooing at Lowly Worm and eagerly tracking Officer Flossie's book-long chase after that irresponsible, speedster driver in a cowboy hat." (Ages 2 and older) --Gail Hudson

Is my child ready for this set?
"Read to me": Children age 3+ will enjoy having these books read to them either by Luka or a caregiver.
"Read by myself": Only advanced Chinese readers will be able to actually read all of the text in this book, but, young children will enjoy independently looking at the pictures and pointing out characters here and there that they recognize.
Option to pair with Luka:
Luka reads* all 4 books included in this set as well as all book sets in our "Luka Approved" collection.
*Good to know:
In the book 《轱辘轱辘转》Cars and Trucks and Things that Go and 《会讲故事的单词书》Best Word Book Ever, there are individual phrases that would serve as a perfect introduction of vocabulary for children, however, currently, Luka only reads the narrative text and NOT those individual phrases. We, along with many other parents wish Luka would add those individual phrases, so, we have put in a request for Luka to read in the future! Stay tuned, and thank you for your patience!
