Apart from the endpapers and title page, the board book version has the same text and illustrations, just in a more compact format.
While I usually prefer more minimal and less detailed illustrations for board books, since I consider the audience for this format to be 0-2, I have to admit this book has a lot of charm as a board book. The smaller format makes little details, like the polka-dotted cement mixer, really pop and I can see young listeners who are able to sit still looking for all the little jokes in the pictures.
Verdict: I think this will circulate, but it wouldn't work as a choice for a lapsit and ultimately I don't think it's ideal for a board book, due to the illustrations which are a little too busy in the smaller format. It's fine as an addition to your board book collection, but if you have to make a choice, go with the picture book version.
