Little Blue Truckby Alice Schertle
Synopses & Reviews
“Neigh!” said a horse.
“Quack!” said a duck.
“Beep!” said the friendly
Little Blue Truck.
Little Blue Truck is a joyful cacophony of animal and truck sounds that will have youngsters beeping and quacking—and begging for one more go-round! Along the way, readers see that it pays to be kind to our animal friends: If we show friendly respect to others, were more likely to get help when were, say, stuck in the muck in a truck. Jill McElmurrys gouache illustrations of wild-eyed farm animals and country roads are warm and wonderful, suiting the cheerfully rhyming text to a T. This sturdy board book edition is sure to withstand many riotous read-aloud sessions. Beep!
Dont miss the sequel Little Blue Truck Leads the Way (2009)!
"All the animals happily greet Little Blue Truck as it amiably trundles over hill and dale: 'Toad said, 'Croak!'/ and winked an eye/ when Little Blue Truck/ went rolling by.' No wonder, then, that the obnoxious Dump Truck gets a cold shoulder when it goes too fast ('I haven't got time to pass the day/ with every duck along the way!') and gets stuck in the rural muck. But when the selfless Little Blue Truck gets mired while trying to help, all the animals rally 'round and teach Dump Truck about neighborliness (the particularly buff Toad implicitly offers a subsidiary lesson on the value of working out). Schertle's (All You Need for a Beach) rhyming stanzas are succinct, and she gives readers plenty of opportunities to chime in with animal and vehicle noises; colored, standout fonts highlight these sounds for extra effect. McElmurry's (Mad About Plaid) gouaches recall the heyday of Golden Books in their combination of vividness, navet and sweetness, and her rich palette achieves verisimilitude that is no less satisfying for being nostalgic. Ages 3 — 7." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
