Trucks are everywhere in this book, doing all kinds of fun things. There are trucks in the city and more in the country. There are trucks for work and trucks for play. Trucks put out fires and trucks bring ice cream. Some are old, some are new. There are very few unexplored truck options in this book. You will come to realize that trucks are an every day part of life, whether you own one or not!
The word "truck" ends almost every sentence in this illustrated poem. Little truck lovers will love identifying and searching for all of the vehicles on every page. The illustrations are fun and bright. The story is told with a rhythm that is nearly impossible to let go of when the book is closed. The pictures and words on each page meet in some odd and unusual ways, which open doors for creativity and create a sense of irony. It is intended to be over-the-top about trucks and how amazing they are. Perfect for the little truck enthusiast in your home -- well, maybe not your husband.
