Little Green is a green pickup truck who loves helping Farmer Gray and his family with chores. But then a bigger, sturdier blue pickup truck comes along and replaces Little Green. Months pass and Little Green is forgotten in the meadow. When spring comes around, Farmer Gray’s daughter realizes that Little Green would be just right to take to the farmer’s market. She cleans Little Green up and the two are a hit at the farmer's market! Farmer Gray can now use Big Blue and Little Green!
Go, Little Green Truck! is a story of comparison. There is always something or someone who appears to be bigger or better, but there is a place for everyone and everything. This book has simple yet colorful illustrations, and the trucks have human characteristics and personalities of their own. A sweet little family is portrayed in this book. Each season on the farm is represented in the book. The illustrations and text will appeal to young readers, but the message applies to all ages!
