Description

Space Shuttle is preparing in the launchpad to launch into space and to replace an old satellite. The shuttle engines and booster rockets roar into the sky and the shuttle enters space! Will Panda and his crew be able to replace the satellite? Who will they meet along their way? It's time to get busy with machines that race, vroom and zoom! This vibrant series is designed to excite playful pre-schoolers. Each story features a popular vehicle as the central character, and involves a group of animal characters in a supporting role. A detailed spread on different parts of the vehicle will help children tom understand what makes up the machines and help familiarise them with vehicle vocabulary and noises.
