This is a super-size floor book format means that everybody can read along and see the pictures. It features amusing stories, repeated vocabulary and bright pictures on every page help children to feel confident as they build up their reading skills. Other titles in this series include "The Trouble with Tractors", "The Trouble with Trains" and "The Trouble with Trucks". You can follow the troublesome tipper as it hurries through the day, causing mayhem as it crashes into a car, falls into a hole and has to be dug out by a digger. The fun vibrant pictures and silly story in this book help to make reading at home successful and enjoyable. The book can be used in several ways to help beginning readers gain confidence. You can start by reading the illustrated words at the edge of each left-hand page with your child, then have fun trying to spot the same words and pictures in the story itself. Finally, the illustrated words can be found at the end of the book so that you can check all the words that have been learnt.
Nicola Baxter has written or compiled over three hundred titles. She has developed ideas for a variety of international publishers and particularly enjoys the marriage of words and pictures that books entail. Geoff Ball's vibrant illustrations bring the delightful characters in this book to life.
