Strap in for a rousing, rumbling ode to trucks of all stripes, loaded with high-energy verse and whimsical illustrations.
Trucks and MORE trucks! Open-door trucks! Heavy-load trucks! Shake-the-road trucks!
Whether hauling dirt or carrying treats, hurrying to put out a fire or hailing from outer space, this endless array of big, noisy vehicles is a dream parade for every child who loves trucks. Revved up by Peter Stein’s rhythmic verse, combined with Bob Staake’s warm and witty illustrations, this is a road trip kids will want to take again and again.
It’s a rip-roaring ride for young truck-lovers in Stein’s newest book about a wide variety of heavy-duty vehicles…Kiddos still unconvinced about the allure of these massive means of transportation will likely be convinced that “Trucks are COOL— / they’re number one!” by this lively picture book. —Booklist
Staake and Stein keep on truckin’ when madcap tomfoolery and heavy machinery go hand in hand…this is sure to lure in both hardcore preschool truck enthusiasts and their truck-curious compatriots as they pore over the details on every page. Put the pedal to the metal and track down these trucks for your favorite back-seat drivers. —Kirkus Reviews
The lively, detailed, cartoony illustrations are paired humorously with a spirited, page-turning rhythmic narrative, making this title an excellent read-aloud or one-on-one choice…Truck-obsessed children will be entertained for many for re-readings. —School Library Journal
