Why are pigs such bad drivers? Because they always hog the road.
Okay, all joking aside…Kids love things that go.
Whether it’s got two wheels, four wheels, or many more — there’s something about vehicles that can make a child’s eyes light up.
That’s why little ones squeal with delight when they see a school bus driving down the road or they can sit at a construction site for hours and never get bored watching the workers operate the heavy equipment.
Below, we’ve got 6 stories to share that your transportation-lovin’ kiddo will wheel-y enjoy.
Let’s get started.
