Read, Read, Read said the Baby: Yellow Copter by Kersten Hamilton, illustrated by Valeria Petrone

This is a board book adaptation of a 2015 picture book.

When a teacher gets stuck at the top of a ferris wheel, yellow copter comes to the rescue. The story is sprinkled with a few simple vocabulary words, "tail boom" and "rotors" and some fun helicopter sounds. The simple rhyming text is just right for toddlers and preschoolers. The digital illustrations are minimal and have plenty of color, albeit in soft pastels. Yellow copter is a soft yellow against a blue background with red highlights, while more colors burst out in the fair and other scenery.

The board book is a sturdy 6x5 rectangle and has standard chunky pages and tough binding.

Verdict: Toddlers who are into transportation will happily cuddle up for this simple story. If you're looking to expand your transportation or board book sections, this is a good choice.
