As a young child grows and learns new things, they will ask a lot of questions as they recognize the things that interest them. Most children are fascinated with the different types of transportation we have in the world. Most even have toys modeled after some transportation methods such as a toy car, train, or airplane. Nico How Do We Get There? by Fingerprints is a perfect book to introduce some transportation methods to a young child as their curiosity begins to grow along with their eagerness to learn. Come along and experience the exciting world of transportation with Nico the monkey. Nico introduces many different kinds of transportation and how to operate each one. Nico will amuse you as he talks about trains, airplanes, helicopters, trams, cycles, buses, cars, Pogo sticks, ships, and scooters.

This is an enduring and educational pictorial book for adults to share with young children. The illustrations are very vibrant, attention-grabbing, and exciting. Children generally love animal characters in books and movies. Animal characters are usually fun, soft, cuddly, and friendly. The story's main character - Nico the monkey - is fun and entertaining, allowing for young readers to focus on each section of the reading. Each different transportation method has a brief rhyming description to go along with it, enabling young readers to retain the information with ease. The book is a great reference or learning aid for parents to use to educate their young children about the different kinds of transportation we use every day.
