"Horn went Beep!/Engine purred/Friendliest sounds/you ever heard" and with that starts the greatest book ever written (if you ask my toddler). Little Blue Truck and it's companion Little Blue Truck Leads the Way get multiple nightly readings in our house and they are such amazing books neither Dad nor I mind. The art is gorgeous, the rhymes impeccable, and the morals so appreciated that it is one of the rare picture books you won't tire of reading over and over and over again. In Little Blue Truck we learn the importance of being nice to people just because while also getting make super fun animal sounds. In Little Blue Truck Leads the Way we learn the importance of waiting our turn and being patient while making super fun vehicle sounds.— Heather
Beep Beep Beep Meet Blue. A muddy country road is no match for this little pick up--that is, until he gets stuck while pushing a dump truck out of the muck. Luckily, Blue has made a pack of farm animal friends along his route. And they're willing to do whatever it takes to get their pal back on the road.
With a text full of truck sounds and animals noises to read aloud, here is a rollicking homage to the power of friendship and the rewards of helping others. Includes a downloadable party kit for even more fun.
